Veiled Threat
Sally Armstrong
Price: $ 24.95

The women of Afghanistan lived a five-year nightmare under the Taliban regime. In Veiled Threat, Sally Armstrong introduces several of these women ¿ including the interim minister of women¿s affairs, Dr. Sima Samar ¿ who describe the living hell they experienced as well as the quiet rebellion (clandestine schools for girls and health clinics for women) that took place in an effort to subvert the Taliban¿s hateful edicts. One of the first Western journalists to visit Afghanistan, Armstrong provides an insider¿s view of the plight of women there. She also reviews the ebb and flow of women¿s rights in Afghanistan, and accuses the Taliban and other fundamentalist leaders of distorting Islam for political opportunism.
