With All Our Strength: The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The members of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA) have risked life and limb daily to help their tortured sisters in Afghanistan and Pakistan since 1977. <BR>"With All Our Strength" is the inside story of this women-led underground organization and their fight for the rights of Afghan women. Anne Brodsky, the first writer given in-depth access to visit and interview their members and operations in Afghanistan and Pakistan, shines light on the gruesome, often tragic, lives of Afghan women under some of the most brutal sexist oppression in the world. <BR>A skilled interviewer, observer, and writer, Brodsky chronicles how RAWA members, whose identities have been concealed in order to survive, have run schools and orphanages, supplied medical care in secret, and covertly documented fundamentalist atrocities against Afghan women through cameras hidden in their clothes. Since the toppling of the Taliban, RAWA continues its important work, helping women survive not only the aftermath of years of abuse, but broken families, poverty, and the many discriminations that still exist. <BR>An impassioned, riveting account of RAWA's twenty-six year struggle to build empowerment, hope, and resistance among the girls and women of Afghanistan, "With All Our Strength" is a paean to the resilience of Afghan women and a model for women's rights organizations around the world.

Book News Annotation:

Based on rare access to the group, Brodsky (psychology/women's studies, U. of Maryland) chronicles the courageous quest of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA) and their male as well as female supporters for human rights. The book includes a poem with the concluding couplet "I'm the woman who has awoken/I've found my path and will never return," photos of members' underground humanitarian activities, and information on how to contact and support RAWA.
