Roya Mahboob—Afghanistan’s first female tech CEO—took the stage at the San Francisco Freedom Forum to detail her work helping young girls in her home country find success through technological education. Her nonprofit, the Digital Citizen Fund, gives women in Afghanistan a chance to gain independence and a digital voice. Mahboob’s efforts are empowering a new generation of girls who are ready to take on a patriarchal tech world.
