Shabana Basij-Rasikh

TED

Posted: Feb 14, 2013

This was Afghanistan under the Taliban, and traces of that danger remain today. 22-year-old Shabana Basij-Rasikh runs a school for girls in Afghanistan. She celebrates the power of a family’s decision to believe in their daughters—and tells the story of one brave father who stood up to local threats.
