'For so many years, women in Kandahar and across Afghanistan were confined to home. Meeting with people from Herat, Mazar, Kabul, Bamyan, Jalalabad, and Khost is one of the most important moments of my life. We are the future of our country": media and education student Rokia Aziz at the 2005 National University Conference in Herat. Rokia was one of the first women in Kandahar to pursue university studies after the collapse of the Taliban, at a time when men and women were still banned from studying together.
