But how have women-on different levels-lived in Afghanistan? How have they treated been treated, both in the private sphere and in public? And how did they resist mistreatment during the war inside Afghanistan, in refugee camps or in diaspora? Who are the sponsors and perpetrators of human rights violations against Afghanistani women?
What are the connections between Islam, local customs, the mistreatment of women, and women's connectedness to revolution and jihad?

If offers a completely different image of both the suffering and resistance of Afghanistani women than that we in the 'West' have come to know.
