WOMEN OF COURAGE
WOMEN OF COURAGE, formally known as PARWANA, is now available in English
WOMEN OF COURAGE book project
Women of Courage shares an intimate look at the inspiring women who are forging a new future in Afghanistan, and playing a crucial role in the changing landscape of this turbulent nation. First- hand stories and experiences are shared in conversations with a wide array of women from a road worker to a presidential candidate to an Olympic sprinter to a school teacher. Mesmerizing photographs accompany unfiltered interviews, giving voice to a culture of women that has been silenced for decades under the oppressive regime of the Taliban. Experience this transformational period through the eyes and words of the Afghan women that are - for the first time in decades - deciding their own future.
