Come hear Joya speak about the plight of Afghan women and her struggles against injustice.

She has become a victim of death threats and assassination attempts. You will also learn about her memoir, A Woman Among Warlords: The Extraordinary Story of an Afghan Who Dared to Raise Her Voice.

Sponsored at Suffolk University by the Center for Women's Health & Human Rights; Departments of Government, Sociology, History, and Philosophy; Crime and Justice Studies Program; CAS Dean's Office; International Law Students; International Law Concentration; and Suffolk University Women of Color Law Students.
