We Will Rise: Selections from The Afghan Women’s Writing Project, Weekend of March 7 & 8

In honor of Women’s History Month, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is proud to present the KNOW Theatre’s production of We Will Rise: Selections from The Afghan Women’s Writing Project.

We Will RiseThe production, scheduled for a special limited run in the Harriet Tubman Theater March 7-8, is a riveting piece commissioned by the KNOW Theatre, based on the courageous stories from the Afghan Women’s Writing Project.

The Afghan Women’s Writing Project was founded on the principle that to tell one’s story is a human right. It gives a voice to the voiceless by providing training, education, and an outlet for Afghan women to share their stories directly with the world, in their own words, and most importantly free from the filters of male relatives and media.

These women have been told their stories do not matter. They have frequently been forced into silence. And yet many of these women have risked their lives to tell their stories.
