The Women in the Room: A Ms. Conversation With Afghan Peace Negotiators Fawzia Koofi and Fatima Gailani

Fawzia Koofi and Fatima Gailani are two of four women at the Afghan peace talks, negotiating face-to-face with the Taliban. NPR special correspondent Renee Montagne spoke with Gailani and Koofi about what could be ahead for Afghan women.

“Peace is not a lack of war; peace is to live happily with Taliban and with every other group. We don’t want a peaceful prison. We want a peaceful country that everyone is free in.”
