John Kerry, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Laura Bush to Discuss Afghan Women's Future

November 13, 2013 – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and former First Lady Laura Bush will convene Friday at Georgetown for a symposium addressing opportunities and solutions for sustaining the significant progress Afghan women and girls have made in the past 10 years.

The “Advancing Afghan Women: Promoting Peace and Progress in Afghanistan” event also will focus on how to work together with Afghans to protect and expand the gains that Afghan women have made over the past 10 years.

“As Afghanistan navigates its transition, the role of Afghan women will be critical to Afghanistan’s future peace, security and stability,” says Melanne Verveer (I'66, G'69), executive director of the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security (GIWPS) and former U.S. ambassador for global women’s issues. “This event allows representatives from the global community to focus attention on the gains made by Afghan women in the last decade and how to best support Afghans to ensure this trajectory moving forward.”
