First Lady of Afghanistan Rula Ghani spoke at the U.S. Institute of Peace last Wednesday to discuss the role of women in the peacemaking process. Women in Afghanistan have largely been left out of these conversations in the past, however, the First Lady stated that Afghan women, “are no longer going to wait for peace to fall in their laps.

She has promoted education for girls and has worked to improve women’s representation in schools and within public offices. In her first speech as First Lady, Rula Ghani encouraged women to expand their roles and work outside of the home, an idea that 74 percent of Afghan people now agree with, a record high.
