Description

In 2005, Afghanistan held its first parliamentary elections in 35 years. Among the candidates for assembly seats was Malalai Joya, a 27-year-old woman who had spoken out against warlords at the Grand Council of tribal elders in 2003. This video portrays this extraordinary woman and the way she won the hearts of voters, as well as a glimpse of life and politics in war-torn Afghanistan. (59 min.)
