really liked it
Read in June, 2009

A book of a number of collected stories about different people's experiences with RAWA (Revolutionary Association of Women in Afghanistan.) Obviously, these are brave women who deserve the support of the world community- they were resisting the Taliban before the rest of the world even knew what the Taliban was. What this book opened my eyes to the most though was Afghani men and their interactions with RAWA. Not all Afghani men (I don't think even most Afghani men) are fundamentalist extermeist. Many are also working toward the equal rights of women in their country. I learned not to judge the men of Afghanistan on only the basis of what I know about the Taliban.
