With All Our Strength:
The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan
By Anne E. Brodsky
With a foreward from RAWA
With All Our Strength chronicles the history of RAWA and their battle for women's rights in Afghanistan. Through interviews with more than 100 members and supporters of RAWA, Brodsky reveals the principles behind their enormous success. With All Our Strength tells how RAWA's innovative structure and strong spirit of community have allowed this remarkable organization to survive. With All Our Strength is an ode to the resilience of Afghan women and a model for all human rights organizations. As RAWA says in their foreward, "This is the only book that uses firsthand experiences to accurately portray Afghan women not as silent victims under the burqas but warriors who have bravely resisted all oppressive regimes and have changed their lives and the lives of many others."
Arundhati Roy writes:
"Anne Brodsky's book gives us a ring side view of this extraordinary women's movement that is as doggedly committed to … democracy as it is to … dreaming of another, better world. Each of us needs a little RAWA."
Katha Pollit says:
"Anne Brodsky goes behind the headlines to look closely at a unique organization that according to popular stereotypes of Afghan women should not exist."
Ahmed Rashid calls it "A powerful story."
With All Our Strength is available in bookstores throughout the U.S., through a link on RAWA's webiste, from Amazon.com, and is coming to English language bookstores throughout the world.
