The short film "The Sharp Edge of Peace", supported by the Heinrich Böll Foundation, accompanies and portrays Fatima Gailani, Fawzia Koofi, Habiba Sarabi, and Sharifa Zurmati, the only female members of the Afghan government delegation to the intra-Afghan peace negotiations in Doha, which began in September 2020. The short-film highlights the important role of these four women in defending women's rights, human rights, and an inclusive society in Afghanistan as part of the negotiations with the Taliban.
