This is a book I read when I was still in the university, I loved it and it is one of my favourites. I tremendously enjoyed it. It is a non-fiction, I have actually forgotten how it fell into my hands but I have a copy.
It tells the story of a Somalian girl (today an important political figure, feminist, activist and writer) how she survived war, went through female circumcision and other very difficult circumstances. Immigrated to the Netherlands were she sought asylum, worked so hard and transformed into an outstanding intelligent woman who went into politics and fought (still fighting) for the right of women especially in the Islamic religion.
This is a book I highly recommend, it tells the story of survival, how nothing evolves into something great.
I have read this book, she is a very courageous womanReplyDelete
