“Nadia Ghulam Dastgir was born in Kabul (Afghanistan) in 1985. Her life, like many other Afghan women, has been marked by the consequences of a cruel civil war, hunger and the Taliban regime. But these adversities couldn’t stop her and Nadia managed to move forward thanks to her ingenuity and courage, passing herself as a boy for ten years in order to feed her family.” www.nadiaghulam.com
Today is a very special day – we respect this day a lot. Therefore, we have invited Ms. Nadia GHULAM from Catalonia, Spain – she is from Afghanistan, where woman was punished and they are still living under families, society and government pressures. Of course, Taliban have been killed thousands of women in Afghanistan and Ms. GHULAM was the one who put herself as a boy for ten years in order to feed her family in such a horrible situation in Taliban regime in Kabul, Afghanistan. She got injured and burned due to a bomb attack (maybe by “butcher of Kabul” Gulbuddin Hekmatyar: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/may/04/afghan-warlord-gulbuddin-hekmatyar-returns-kabul-20-years-call-peace) in this country and this was the only gift for her as an Afghan woman. She is a talented and brave woman. Since she lives (in peace) in Spain, she is allowed to do everything that she wanted to do and was forbidden in her country – she lives in full freedom, she is author of 3 books, performer of a theater on her own name (Nadia), finished her master program, she has established her own non-profit-organization and training to help her country and her own family.
