Women and Gender Studies

Student's theatrical performance inspired by CU class

Growing up in Afghanistan, CU-Boulder student Lima Esslam came to understand the pressure that many young women face to accept offers for arranged marriage. Now, a senior pursuing a degree in women and gender studies, she has career aspirations of working with organizations that promote women’s safety and education.

When Esslam recently returned to Afghanistan for family weddings, she became even more aware of the reality that young Afghan women often face.
