Imagine a world where any passing vehicle might spray acid on you; where your school bus route must change every week so someone will not board it and assault you. Your crime?

In her life-changing presentation, see how women’s access to opportunity is threatened worldwide - including in your own country - and how she courageously plans to lead cultural change in Afghanistan!
