So with Zarifa, for me, it was easier because she was a woman, she was from my own generation and we were trying to make a change in our communities, using different tools or different ways. But then also we thought that's important to include also the Taliban, because there was peace talks going on between the US government and the Taliban, but Afghans were not included. And we, as Afghan woman, knew that we will be more affected than anyone if there is any change in the country, especially if Taliban will come back to power.
