In Her Hands Screening and Live Debrief

We are so excited to help bring a powerful new documentary, In Her Hands, to your classroom in partnership with Netflix! Filmed across two turbulent years, In Her Hands tells the story of Zarifa Ghafari, who at 26 became one of Afghanistan’s first female mayors and the youngest to ever hold the position. The film documents her fight for survival against the backdrop of her country’s accelerated unraveling. As Western forces announce their retreat and the Taliban start their sweep back to power, Zarifa and women across the country face a new reality. Amid these tectonic changes, Zarifa must make the most difficult decision of her life. You can view the film (PG-13; 1 hour 32 min.) directly on Netflix beginning November 16th.
