Dear Zari: Hidden Stories from Women in Afghanistan


Default Title

Dear Zari gives voice to the secret lives of women across Afghanistan and allows them to tell their stories in their own words: from the child bride given as payment to end a family feud; to a life spent in a dark, dusty room weaving carpets; to a young girl brought up as a boy; to life as a widow shunned by society. Compelling and enlightening,  Dear Zari uncovers the reality of life in Afghanistan in stories that are by turn heart-breaking and uplifting.
