Fawzia Koofi, the Movement for Change Party leader and a former Afghan House of Representatives member, will speak at the annual Nobel Peace Summit.

Koofi said on her social media platform X, “I am delighted to be one of the speakers at the Nobel Peace Oslo in September. She continued, “The world has become a place where women and their rights are used as an object to gain power. Today, more women and children lose their lives in conflict. We must unite in the face of continued suppression of women.”

The Nobel Peace Center announced on Wednesday, May 8, that the summit will occur on September 5 this year.

The institution added that the annual Nobel Peace Summit brings together laureates, experts, policymakers, and activists to discuss challenges and explore solutions.

According to the newsletter, the summit will highlight the dangerous setbacks in women’s rights worldwide and examine the best practices to address them.

It is worth mentioning that Fawzia Koofi was also awarded the Spanish Bar Council’s Human Rights Prize in 2022.

It is noted that with the Taliban’s rise to power in Afghanistan, women in the country live under the group’s severe restrictions.
