#of someone fighting for women s rights under turmoil and the #someone fighting for women s rights under turmoil and the regimes that have plagued Afghanistan for decades is well worth nduring some stilted writingand 50 pages into it I mostly forgot about how it was written and became immersed in the vents of Meena s life This is one of the highlighted "Read Of 2007 The Book Was Well "of 2007 The book was well and aimed to portray the real story of a real woman leaving any imposed political agenda out of the biography MEENA s agenda however is consistent and apparent throughout her பொன்னியின் செல்வன் - புது வெள்ளம் extraordinary life The book wasnlightening inspiring and best of all very true I almost wanted to give the book 5 stars because I was so impressed with the the breadth of research the author did to present a comprehensive life history of an important but largely unknown historical figure Trouble is the writing style was a bit overly sentimental in places and the beginning was stilted with far too much time spent on Meena s near fatal childhood illness That said once the book gets going it doesn t stop It continually boggles the mind the level of courage shown by not only Meena but all the women of RAWA in fighting first the Soviet puppet government that took power and imprisoned tortured and killed intellectuals and dissenters and then the American supported Islamic fundamentalist regime that brutally repressed all the women and religious minorities in the region This is a story that needed telling and it is right and just that the proceeds from the book should go to RAWA s modern incarnation. Been silenced The compelling story of Meena's struggle for democracy and women's rights in Afghanistan will inspire young women the world ove. .

*account here i *here I it s hard to be critical of someone who was a true martyr but at times Meena was really acting pathological than brave not letting her daughter have "a doll working till she dropped while pregnant these aren t things to necessarily celebrate in her character "doll working till she dropped while pregnant these aren t things to necessarily celebrate in her character any case these are great women doing great work After finishing I looked them up online to see what had become of them as it sounds like their work is far from over and the need for them is really at its greatest Anti islam Anti Pakistan And to some xtent ven anti Afghan culture I would ve been interested in Meena s story if the author was not so biased and incorrect in her factsAvoid An inspiring biography of Meena written shortly after the history by Brodsky which it seems to be partly based on although it has other information This is written in a simpler less academic. The unforgettable story of how one woman dared to start a revolution Meena founded RAWA in 1977 as a twenty year old Kabul University student.
