Nearly 200 Years—Learn More About Norwich

February 14, 2018 – Women’s rights activist Shabana Basij-Rasikh visited Norwich University to speak about her experience as a young Afghan girl under the Taliban Regime. She also spoke of founding her home country’s first all-girls boarding school, the School of Leadership, Afghanistan. Born in Kabul, Afghanistan, Basij-Rasikh received her early education dressed up as a boy while escorting her sister to a secret school. After six long years of living under the Taliban in constant fear, she was able to attend a public school where she found herself years ahead of her peers.

Her talk was sponsored by the Peace & War Center, The Academic Achievement Center, the International Education Office, and the Center for Civic Engagement. Learn more about SOLA.
