Following her return to Afghanistan, Jafari was a member of the Loya Jirga under the Karzai administration and was the sole female co-author of the new Constitution of Afghanistan in 2003. She authored I Am A Working Woman, holds a degree in midwifery, and has won numerous awards for her commitment to social development.
