A powerful reminder of independent media's power to bear witness, AFGHANISTAN UNVEILED reveals the effects of the Taliban's repressive rule and of the U.S.-sponsored bombing campaign on Afghan women. The ITVS Community Connections Project is partnering with organizations in a community engagement campaign that reaches out to public policy makers, human rights organizations, faith-based congregations, international relief agencies, students and cultural organizations. The campaign aims to educate audiences about the challenges faced by Afghan women, and provides refugee and immigrant organizations with tools to educate their communities about women’s changing roles in Afghanistan.
