The Muslim Community Center (5100 N. Kevy Place) of Tucson is welcoming Dr. Shinkai Karokhail, a feminist and one of the few female members of the Afghan parliament. 
"Karokhail had to battle the prejudices of Afghan society to get where she is today, namely that women should not hold public office," said reporters Sylvain Lepetit and Miyuki Droz Aramaki in an article for France 24. "Every day, the lawmaker risks her life to help her fellow citizens and promote women’s rights."

Karokhail will be speaking about her experiences breaking into the Afghani political process, the challenges she has faced, and her successes fighting corruption and misogyny. The event is tonight (sorry, newsletter readers!) Friday, Feb. 19 at 7:35p.m.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
