This chapter details the path to leadership for the conference women in general, and for Marzia Basel and Jamila Afghani in particular. It is in the area of leadership development that Marzia's and Jamila's life stories emerged as evocative but diverse case studies. Both had spent their lives from early ages on working to effect changes in Afghan women's opportunities and to enhance women's understanding of their rights within Islam and Afghan traditions. Given their advantages and backgrounds, both could have had easier lives, but neither ever considered such a choice. Rather, they both volunteered for enormous challenges and sought meaning in attempting to meet them.

Keywords:   Afghan women, Jamila Afghani, Marzia Basel, education, leadership development
