Synopsis: This book looks at how Afghan women have fought repression and challenged stereotypes, both within the country and in diasporas in Iran, Pakistan, the US and the UK. Covering topics from the Taliban and the impact of 9/11 to the role of NGOs and the growth of the opium economy, Rostami-Povey gets behind the media hype and presents a vibrant and diverse picture of these women's lives. The future of women's rights in Afghanistan, she argues, depends not only on overcoming local male domination, but also on challenging imperial domination and opposing the growing divide between the West and the Muslim world.
About the Author: Elaheh Rostami-Povey is a Development Studies lecturer at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. Her areas of specialization are gender issues in Iran and Afghanistan
