Underground Girls of Kabul by Jenny Nordberg

Welcome to a world of child brides, honour killings, girls pretending to be boys and burkas. This is an interesting but depressing book about the situation of women in Kabul. The women in the book are extremely admirable and brave - they try to do what they can to make a difference to a country full of harsh restrictions on women. I especially liked reading about the politician who is battling huge odds.

Unfortunately, I haven't finished this, because it is written in the present tense, so I found it a bit difficult to read.
