An Interview with Afghanistan’s First Female Governor: Dr. Habiba Sorabi


The Taliban poses an acute threat to feminist efforts to promote basic human rights for women and girls in Afghanistan. In 2005, Habiba Sarabi became the first woman to be appointed governor of any of the country’s 34 provinces. This short film documents how she fearlessly advocated for women’s rights and for greater representation of women in Afghanistan’s government, and how she worked to maintain relative peace in her province. With the Taliban’s return, such efforts on behalf of women have been put in jeopardy.

The film is also available on Vimeo.
