Forced to flee their country after the Taliban takeover in 2021, four Afghan women leaders struggle to keep the world’s attention on the unfolding crisis, while coming to terms with what it means to have their power usurped and two decades of progress dismantled. From their distant exile countries, these four female leaders – past parliamentarians, ministers, and journalists – watch the Taliban strip women and girls of the right to be educated, to work and to participate in society. No longer in positions of influence, they are forced to reinvent themselves to continue the fight for a free and just Afghanistan. Can these women succeed when the world’s attention has turned to the following headline and even the greatest superpower has admitted defeat ?
