traveled to many countries in the past several years to speak on behalf of

RAWA, the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan, was
established in Kabul, Afghanistan in 1977 as an independent
political/social organization of Afghan women fighting for human rights
and for social justice in Afghanistan. The founders were a number of
Afghan woman intellectuals, led by Meena, who was assassinated in Quetta,
Pakistan in 1987 by Afghan agents of the KGB. RAWA's objective is to
involve an increasing number of Afghan women in social and political
activities aimed at acquiring women's human rights and contributing to the
struggle for the establishment of a government based on democratic and
secular values in Afghanistan. Despite the suffocating political
atmosphere, RAWA has been involved in widespread activities in different
socio-political arenas including educa! tion, health and income generation
as well as political agitation. Web site: http://www.rawa.org
