Wherever you are in the world, on Tuesday March 29th, 2011 I invite you to join the 10 Afghan women who were recently elected to the Afghan Parliament for a 2-hour live web conference. The program is organized with the support of the US and Afghan embassies in France, the French Parliament and Ministry for Foreign Affairs, and the ESSEC Group for 10 Afghan women recently elected to the Afghan Parliament.

The conference will bring together the following individuals to discuss the social, political and ethnic configuration of Afghanistan 10 years after the start of the democratic process:
- Ten Women Members of the Afghan Parliament
- His Excellency Mr. Omar Samad, Ambassador of Afghanistan in France
- Mr. Mark Taplin, Deputy Chief of Mission, U.S. Embassy in France

The first part (60 minutes) of the conference will be dedicated to questions asked by journalists of Mardis de l’ESSEC to the Afghan women Members of the Parliament about:
- the current situation in Afghanistan (economy, education, health, and women issues, etc.),
- the evolution of the situation in Afghanistan in recent years (the role of the Taliban, the international community, and the neighboring countries, etc.),
- the women’s vision for the near future.

The second part (about 60 minutes) will be dedicated to questions and answers from the audience in the conference room in France and abroad through the web.

The conference will start at:
- 8pm (France time)
