Summary
"Since their founding in 1977, 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." "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 meet and interview their members, Afghan supporters, and the people they serve as well as visit their operations in Afghanistan and Pakistan, shines light on the gruesome lives of Afghan women under some of the most brutal sexist oppression in the world. Amazingly, though there are many tragic stories here, there are also stories of courage, incredible resilience, and even triumph." "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, not only helping women and children survive the aftermath of years of abuse, but continuing to fight for human rights, equality for women, and a free and democratic Afghanistan."--Jacket
