With All Our Strength is the inside story of this women-led underground organization and their fight for the rights of Afghan women. Anne Brodsky, the first writer given in-depth access to visit and interview their members and operations in Afghanistan and Pakistan, shines light on the gruesome, often tragic, lives of Afghan women under some of the most brutal sexist oppression in the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Heavily sprinkled with perceptive interviews."
-"Publishers Weekly
"[G]roundbreaking....The first writer with in-depth access to RAWA, Brodsky writes a passionate narrative....[S]tands out as a lone and important study of a remarkable organization."
-"Publishers Weekly
"A ring side view of RAWA, the extraordinary women's movement that is as doggedly committed to democracy as it is to dreaming of another, better world."
-Arundhati Roy
""With All Our Strength is the first political history of Afghanistan told through women's eyes. Afghan women have always been depicted as the victims of war and mass destruction, but Brodsky shows us that real and powerful women live behind the veil and she has given them a voice and a history. This is the story of those defiant Afghan women who never succumbed or surrendered to extremism or despair and who want nothing more than to build peace and democracy in their county. A powerful story."
-Ahmed Rashid, author of "Taliban and "Jihad
"Anne Brodsky goes behind the headlines to look closely at a unique organization that according to popular stereotypes of Afghan women should not exist. RAWA is a militant, secular, feminist, pro-democracy movement run by women. Brodsky shows us how ordinary women, including those who are illiterate and who have experienced traumatic violence, can become powerful agents of social and political change. Combining scholarship with empathy, Brodsky produces a fascinating book."
-Katha Pollitt
