Afghan women keep hope alive one year after the fall of Kabul
One year after the Taliban took over Kabul, Afghan-Canadian author Nahid Shahalimi says the voices of Afghan women are not being heard. In her new book, We Are Still Here: Afghan Women on Courage, Freedom, and the Fight to Be Heard, Shahalimi collects the stories and struggles of 13 female leaders whose hope for Afghanistan's future has not faded, despite severe restrictions on women's rights under the Taliban. Shahalimi shares some of their accounts with Megan Williams and talks about what further support she wants to see from the international community today.
