Today, Representatives Donna F. Edwards (D-MD) and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), the co-chairs of the Afghan Women’s Caucus, will address colleagues and friends at an event co-hosted by The Heritage Foundation and the United States Institute of Peace to discuss how important it is that the gains Afghan women have made over the last decade are not lost as U.S. and coalition forces draw down.

Watch the event live at 2:00 p.m. ET here and later, please join us on the Afghan Women’s Task Force Facebook page for updates.
