Nazira Karimi, a celebrated Afghan journalist, turned to Tahirih Justice Center for protection as the Taliban rose to power in the late 1990s. The Taliban issued a death sentence against her in response to her intrepid reporting of their brutality against women, and she was forced to flee to the United States.
"I had no choice. I left Afghanistan. I left my lovely country," Karimi told guests at the gala on April 14 in Washington, DC.
Unfortunately, even after her painful decision to leave her home, Nazira's extended family remained under threat. With Tahirih's advocacy, Karimi eventually won their protection as refugees in the United States, changing asylum policy in the region for good.
Tahirih Founder and Executive Director Layli Miller-Muro said Karimi reflects the strength of all Tahirih clients-heroic immigrant women and girls who are fleeing extreme forms of gender-based violence including rape, female genital mutilation, domestic violence, human trafficking, honor crimes, and forced marriage.
"Nazira was an effective advocate, and she saved herself," Miller-Muro said Tuesday.
Karimi says her life stands as a testament to Tahirih's impact. The broadcast journalist and her immediate and extended family are now happily settled in the United States, where Karimi continues to work as a celebrated journalist for Ariana Television Network. But she has an unfulfilled wish.

It was this same spirit that the Taliban sought to crush when they decided to murder Nazira for speaking out against their brutality, fanatical activities, and gender-apartheid politics.
What followed was a horrifying ordeal, as Nazira and her entire family endured persistent violent harassment for years. Only when the entire family resettled in the United States as refugees, thanks to the tireless efforts of Tahirih in tandem with the Feminist Majority Foundation, were they able to safely and happily rebuild their lives.
During her speech, Nazira recalled how it felt to be forced to flee her homeland, and to have the threat of death hanging over her and her entire family.
"I had no choice. I left Afghanistan. I left my lovely country," Nazira told gala guests.
Unfortunately, her painful journey did not end with her heart-wrenching decision to flee her home. Nazira revealed that after she and her immediate family had been relocated to the United States through emergency UNHCR action, she received a different sort of death threat; her mother vowed to kill herself and Nazira's sister to end their suffering, rather than risk being found by the Taliban. At this point in the evening, Nazira paid special tribute to her mother's strength through what she calls 'the dark days.'
Several times throughout her speech, Nazira paused to recognize the bravery of her family, and to thank Tahirih for their work in bringing her family to the United States.
"Today I'm still alive," she stated proudly, "Tahirih Justice Center saved my life and my family's life."
The Karimi's case resulted in a well-received recommendation to expedite the resettlement of Afghan women in the United States, and for the establishment of a permanent INS processing center in Islamabad, Pakistan.
"Immigration law changed because of the wonderful job of Tahirih Justice Center," Nazira said.
Despite her ordeal, Nazira said she has faith that terrorist organizations such as the Taliban and ISIS will be defeated- thanks to Tahirih Justice Center and organizations like it that fight for human rights every day.
Today, Nazira continues her intrepid reporting as a journalist with Afghanistan's largest private media outlet, Ariana Television Network.
She and her family have found safety and dignity in the United States, but one of Nazira's wishes remains unfulfilled.
"Women still suffer. They're still suffering not only in Afghanistan - around the world. That's very sad. My wish as a woman who suffered in Afghanistan, my hope, is that one day women will be equal. One day women will be free," Nazira said.
