The Favored Daughter: One Woman's Fight to Lead Afghanistan Into the Future

Amazon.com Rating:

Born to the second of her father's seven wives in rural Afghanistan, Fawzia Koofi's mother — who had hoped for a son — left her to die in the sun after birth. But despite a childhood of abuse and deprivation in a notoriously sexist society, she rose above her fate to become the first female Speaker of Parliament. Along the way, she faced the murders of her father, brother, and husband, and numerous attempts on her own life.

Here, she shares her amazing story, punctuated by a series of poignant letters she wrote to her two daughters before each political trip: letters describing the future and freedoms she dreamed of for them and all their countrywomen.
