Khalida was outraged. How does a woman's murder promote the honor of a man? What of her own honor? While in town, she had been participating in a woman's study group of the Koran, and she was certain that bride exchanges and honor murders were not part of the text. In an effort to combat the poverty in which women lived, she started cottage industries, reasoning that when women contributed financially to a family's income, they would gain more power. Her work mushroomed into endeavors that drew worldwide attention.
This wasn't easy for her. The story of the personal struggles she had with her own father, whom she loved very much and wanted to please, give the book its underlying humanity. Her voice is simple but sincere.
I came away from this book with a deeper understanding of Pakistan and its problems but also a great deal of joy that people like Khalida Brohi are borne into this world and striving to make such important changes. This is a book I recommend to everyone.
The book is a quick read. I am deducting a star because the book needed some editing for clarity and flow, mostly at the macro level of ideas.
