2TG celebrates International Women’s Day and supports the IBA’s initiative to support the Afghan women judges

Date: March 11, 2022

To celebrate International Women’s Day and to support the IBA’s initiative to support the Afghan women judges, we were thrilled to host Baroness Helena Kennedy QC and Judge Ferozan Qasimi at a breakfast panel discussion chaired by Caroline Harrison QC. It was fascinating to hear about the experience of the female lawyers working in Afghanistan and of the herculean efforts to support their evacuation to safe destinations around the world. We were delighted to welcome our guests in person and overwhelmed by the support that was offered to help the Afghan women forge legal careers in the UK.
