Zoya grew up during the wars that ravaged Afghanistan and lost both her parents in a bombing raid on Kabul. Zoya's story is of a young woman fighting a clandestine war of resistance against the Taliban at the risk of her own life. Having escaped in her teens to Pakistan where she now works tirelessly in a refugee camp, she also makes dangerous journeys back to her homeland to help the women oppressed by a regime that enforces the wearing of the stifling burqua, condones public stoning if they venture out without a male chaperone and absolutely forbids women's education or work. Zoya's story is a memoir that speaks louder than the images of devastation and outrage; it is a powerful message of optimism as she struggles to bring the plight of Afghan women to the world's attention.
Zoya grew up Kabul, Afghanistan, and escaped to Pakistan after a bomb killed her parents. She works in a refugee camp in Pakistan among the thousands who have fled their country. Rita Cristofari has been a press officer for the UN and Medecins Sans Frontieres and writes on human rights issues. John Follain is a graduate of Oxford University and works for Reuters.
