Connecticut women support Afghan women

Three Connecticut women will discuss their work to help Afghan women in their struggle for education and equal rights at the St. Matthew’s Seniors’ luncheon at noon on Thursday, Sept. 18.

The women, one of whom was born in Afghanistan, will describe their efforts to bring education to Afghan women and girls as they fight against incredible obstacles to make their voices heard.

Connie Tate, a World YWCA representative to the UN, Elizabeth Titus, a professional writer working with the Afghan Women’s Writing Project and the SOLA school in Afghanistan, and Shekaiba Bennett, will be the speakers.

Lunch will be served at St. Matthew’s, 36 New Canaan Road. To reserve, please call the Church office at 203-762-7400.
