A KBOO International Women's Day Exclusive on A Deeper Look!
NOTE: Due to time restrictions a briefer version of this interview aired on International Women's Day followed by listener calls. It is my pleasure to present a longer more complete interview here.
Malalai Joya is a courageous voice in one of the most difficult places to live in the world. The youngest person to ever be elected to the Parliament of Afghanistan, she has dedicated her life to ending the rule of warlords and war criminals and the U.S. Occupation that props them up. She has survived 5 assassination attempts as she continues to speak out about the the real enemies of peace in her country. In this KBOO exclusive interview Ms. Joya addresses a wide range of issues, from the living conditions faced by the average Afghan, the Talibanization of the Afghan Government, conditions face by women today and much more!
