Women Empowerment and Leadership Eid Celebration and Voice of Afghan Women

Women Empowerment and Leadership Eid Celebration and Voice of Afghan Women

On the 7th of July, the Women Empowerment and Leadership organization celebrated the rich tapestry of culture and shared communal joy at the recent Eid Celebration and Voice of Afghan Women event. Eid is an important celebration for the Islamic community which represents a time for family, celebration, joy, and
community. It is great that we can all be here today to share our stories, culture, food, and performances together in celebration. This is significantly important for the women of Afghanistan who under
the oppressive rule of the Taliban, Afghan women are denied many rights and freedoms, including the liberty to celebrate Eid with joy and peace in their homeland. Thus, WEL’s event extended beyond
the bounds of our immediate community, to embrace and represent these brave women, giving a platform to the ‘Voice of Afghan Women’. The Eid celebration was a tribute to their spirit, their resilience, and their strength.

The event also highlighted the strength of the community with beautiful displays of cultural pride and performance including traditional dancing and musical performances. This was a special highlight for guests to witness and be united with compassion and joy. This Eid celebration was also an avenue for community education and enlightenment.

The event was graced by inspiring guest speakers and riveting presentations that underscored the value of multicultural understanding and unity. These included a talk on the significance of Multicultural Art, which painted vivid imagery of our shared human experience and the beauty of our differences. Additionally, a deeply touching presentation on Mental Health Awareness, delivered by the Women Mentoring Foundation, brought attention to the often-overlooked aspect of well-being. Their insights served as an enlightening call, urging us to extend empathy and support to those struggling silently amidst us.

In essence, our Multicultural Eid celebration stood as a symbol of unity, education, and resilience. It was an event that reinforced our commitment to raising awareness, uplifting the oppressed, and celebrating our shared humanity. Together, we raised our voices to echo the voice of Afghan women, and took a step forward in making a difference, one celebration at a time.
