The book includes a variety of female voices, highlighting a unifying desire to come together as women and share, network, and strategize for change. This desire is focused on Afghan women but is also about global sisterhood and about the importance of feminist activism on an international level. “Women for Afghan Women,” a group comprised of both Afghan and non-Afghan women, was formed in April 2001 and is committed to the struggle for Afghan women’s human rights.
