Dear Zari : Hidden Stories from Women of Afghanistan, Paperback

Dear Zari : Hidden Stories from Women of Afghanistan Paperback


"Dear Zari" gives voice to the secret lives of women across Afghanistan and allows them to tell their stories in their own words: from the child bride given as payment to end a family feud; to a life spent in a dark, dusty room weaving carpets; to a young girl brought up as a boy; to life as a widow shunned by society.

Compelling and enlightening, "Dear Zari" uncovers the reality of life in Afghanistan in stories that are by turn heart-breaking and uplifting.
