A Woman Among Warlords

Malalai Joya’s story could have easily ended as a quick headline about Afghanistan’s promising young parliamentarian, a symbol of budding freedom and women’s progress. In A Woman Among Warlords, Malalai Joya tells her version of the story, which is not so neatly packaged.

She unravels a complex history of occupation that sheds light on the current situation. Banished from her elected position in Parliament for her outspoken views, Joya is quick to remind us that this is not her story alone, but the story of multitudes of silenced Afghan women. Thanks to her book, Joya’s victories belong to women the world over.
