The former deputy speaker of parliament, Koofi is very outspoken on women's issues. "Reconciliation will not bring peace to Afghanistan," she says. "Peace is a result of democracy. You have to include everyone in that process, including women." She is running for a second term in parliament but fears that new election rules may make it more difficult to succeed and that outspoken women like her will be sidelined.
