Afghan Women's Fight for Human Rights
Is Subject of Lecture

A look at the life of Afghan people living in refugee camps will be the subject of a lecture by Anne Brodsky, a faculty member at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, on Wednesday, April 3, at 7 p.m. in the Glass Pavilion on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Brodsky has visited rural and urban communities, toured schools and orphanages, and met hundreds of Afghan refugees, including members of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA). An assistant professor of psychology and women's studies, Brodsky talked to the Afghan people about their conditions, concerns and resistance efforts. During her stay at the camps, Brodsky helped to document human rights violations as well as how RAWA members are continuing to fight fundamentalist oppression.

Brodsky's lecture is sponsored by Johns Hopkins' student chapter of Amnesty International and Physicians for Human Rights. Refreshments will be served after the lecture. For information, call (410) 889-0289.
