Hidden Faces: Women and Girls in Afghanistan

A new photography exhibition, promoting women’s rights in Afghanistan, opens next week at the House of Commons.

Hidden Faces: Women and Girls in Afghanistan has been produced and curated by British and Irish Agencies in Afghanistan Group (BAAG) to highlight the continuing struggles of war-ravaged Afghan women - in education and health, economic and political empowerment.

The exhibition documents the work of British NGOs such as Afghanaid, CARE International, Christian Aid, International Medical Corps and Tearfund.
