Camilla was at Dumfries House yesterday for a session on Women in Journalism . The Duchess gave a short speech in which she assured that “all journalists who fight for truth and justice in the face of reprisals deserve our thanks and admiration.” And, specifically, and in line with what is happening in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of the North American and European troops, he expressed his concern because ” I have been informed that if in 2020 there were 700 women journalists working in Kabul, today there are less than 100. With the loss of 600 voices, the experiences of countless Afghans will not be counted. “
The Duchess spoke specifically with the journalist and BBC presenter Yalda Hakim, born in Afghanistan, but who as a child had to emigrate with her family to Australia after the Soviet invasion of her country. On August 15, while commenting on the situation in Afghanistan on his program, he received a live call from Suhail Sheheem, a Taliban spokesman who assured him that there would be no revenge against anyone
