Afghan Gender Cafe
"The goal was to create a space for people to meet and talk about their experiences working on gender issues, to come together to share ideas, lessons learned and to support each other in a non-hierarchical communication space. This website is a continuation of those conversations in the form of an online cafe for networking, advocacy, activism, announcements, news and interaction...The cafe discussion forums provide a unique space to interact with others, to share ideas and information, to ask for assistance, and to tap into the collective wisdom that exists among us."
