She has worked continuously to promote womens rights, human rights, immigrants rights and ethnic Hazaras rights.

After two decades of absence, Zareen returned to Afghanistan for a two month video documentary journey that she organized and led. She brought back over 40 hours of video tapes, 700 photographs and 20 hours of cassette recordings; parts of which are included in her videos here.

This video is only part of Zareen’s work as she hopes to complete a feature-length documentary.
