JENNY NORDBERG PRESENTS THE UNDERGROUND GIRLS OF KABUL
On February 28, 2017, Baker students attended a presentation by Jenny Nordberg about her book, The Underground Girls of Kabul. Nordberg was the first to uncover the story of the "bacha posh" - the act of disguising girls as boys in "gender-segregated" Afghanistan. Nordberg led an eye opening and in-depth discussion about this practice, and on the related themes of gender and oppression.
