The Ismaili Council for Afghanistan’s Women’s Committee hosted a multi-city event on 14 March 2019 to coincide with International Women’s Day. The programme brought together over 3,000 women and men to celebrate the role of women in society.

Fatimid women owned land, property, jewelry, and textiles, one of the most prized commodities of the period. Made in Egypt in the 11th century, this lustre-painted dish depicts a richly-attired female figure holding a cup. The vegetal scroll-like patterns of her sleeves are mirrored in the dish’s overall decoration.

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, 8 March 2019, we celebrate the achievements of notable Muslim women - historical and contemporary - who have inspired and continue to inspire people of all faiths, backgrounds, and fields of endeavour.
