Advance Praise for Behind the Burqa " Whenever and wherever adults make war, children die and women are subjected to fear and humiliation. This is true of Afghanistan too. Read this harrowing book. The tragic yet heroic tale of two women is told with great simplicity. They will haunt you." Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate " The stories of Sulima and Hala achingly articulate the twin and enduring legacies of misogyny and violence. A critical historical document, Behind the Burqa ultimately reveals the unbreakable strength of Afghan women." Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues Founder and Artistic Director, V-Day " Behind the Burqa provides important information about conditions in Afghanistan, as well as the plight of asylum-seekers in the United States.I highly recommend this book to all people who are concerned about human rights, both at home and abroad." Senator Sam Brownback, (R. Kansas) ranking member, Immigration Subcommittee, Committee on the Judiciary " This book is a gripping reading experience, and it also offers important suggestions for those who would like to participate in making our asylum politics more humane." Eleanor Acer, Director, Asylum Program, Lawyers Committee for Human Rights " This book shows the injustices suffered by innocent women seeking asylum in the U. S. and the power of religious faith to provide hope and courage even in prison." Fauziya Kassindja, author of Do They Hear You When You Cry " Sulima and Hala epitomize the worldwide struggle of women for equality and justice. Their story is gripping andilluminating." Jessica Neuwirth, President of Equality Now
