On March 7, 2022, Interchange will be at the House of Lords collaborating on work to support justice for female Afghan judges who face intimidation every day from the Taliban. This International Women’s Day event, hosted by OpenUK, will focus on the needed support for female judges at risk in Afghanistan.

Interchange’s co-CEO, Gráinne Hamilton, will be facilitating at the event and we look forward to this collaboration and outcomes from this time of connection.
