The Women of Afghanistan Under the Taliban

by

The Women of Afghanistan Under the Taliban Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Even though the people of Afghanistan have in general suffered under the rule of the Taliban, women have lived especially difficult lives, enduring terrible hardships. They have been denied basic human rights, forced to wear veils and kept in seclusion.

This work addresses the religion, revolution, and national identity of Afghan women and places them within their gender-political and religious-political roles, thus elevating our understanding of their abuse, imprisonment and murder, and offering a basis for their rehabilitation. Powerful and moving interviews with Afghan women conducted and translated by the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan are presented and a brief history of the struggle of the Afghan women and an overview of the conflict between the Afghans and the Taliban are included.

Synopsis:

In addition to an overview of the Afghan-Taliban conflict, this timely and important book presents powerful and moving interviews with Afghan women along with a history of their struggle.
