Please join our panelists for a discussion of the recently released Netflix documentary film In Her Hands and the future of women’s rights in Afghanistan. Filmed across two turbulent years, In Her Hands tells the story of Zarifa Ghafari, who at twenty six became one of Afghanistan’s first female mayors and the youngest to ever hold the position. The film documents her fight for survival against the backdrop of her country’s accelerated unraveling. As Western forces announce their retreat and the Taliban start their sweep back to power, Zarifa and women across the country face a new reality. Amid these tectonic changes, Zarifa must make the most difficult decision of her life. In Her Hands premiered on Netflix on November 16. In Her Hands was directed by Tamana Ayazi and Marcel Mettelsiefen.PLEASE NOTE: CFR members are encouraged to watch In Her Hands prior to the virtual discussion. The film is out now on Netflix.
