'Bravest woman in Afghanistan' tells why she wears the hated burqa

Malalai Joya reasoning about why wearing burqa

Eleanor Hall, ABC, April 5, 2012

ELEANOR HALL: In 2010, Time magazine called her one of the world's 100 most influential people and Foreign Policy magazine listed her among its Top Global Thinkers.

But to many she is simply "the bravest woman in Afghanistan".

Author and human rights campaigner Malalai Joya has been one of the fiercest critics of the Afghan government and the foreign occupation of her country and the latest attempt on her life was just last month.

In 2005 she become the youngest person to be elected to the new Afghan parliament but she was dismissed two years later for continuing to criticise the warlords and drug barons she accuses of destroying her country.

End the insanity in Afghanistan: troops out now

Sydney Stop the War Coalition is proud to host Malalai Joya at a meeting organised in a question and answer format

Stop the War Coalition, March 29, 2012

Malalai Joya news in Stop the War Coalition

The murderous rampage by a US army sergeant in Afghanistan on March 11, killing 16 civilians (mainly women and children) signifies the death throes of the US occupation.

Whether mental illness can be blamed or not, army veterans only act like this when they have lost all confidence in their command and regard the military mission as hopeless.

Malalai Joya: Brave, Daring, Strong and Truthful

For me, she is the bravest, strongest and most daring woman we have today

Ahura Parwani, Fighting for a Change blog, March 26, 2012

"Do not be angry with me if I tell you the truth." -Socrates

The reason I quoted Socrates is because he is one of the many people who pursued the truth and died because of the truth. He was known as the "gladfly" (as the gadfly stings the horse into action, so Socrates stung various Athenians) of Athens. He irritated many people with considerations of justice and pursuit of goodness. So much, that he was asked to stop. He chose to end his life by drinking poison. And many of our Afghan Women Activists' and Journalists' have had similar stories. For example, Meena (founder of RAWA) was murdered by Gulbuddin's people, Zakia Zaki (Afghan journalist who was assasinated in front of her child), Sitara Achakzai (who returned to Afghanistan to try to improve Women's situations was shot by the Taliban), Safia Ahmed-Jan (she was a provincial director of the Ministry of Women's Affairs in Kandahar province), Malalai Joya and many others. It is a sad reality that even after ten years of war, that country is not a safe place for women. There is no freedom of speech. No democracy. No re-construction. Afghanistan is still at its worst state and will remain there until we have a stable government and a REAL president.

گفت‌وگو با ملالی جویا، فعال اجتماعی افغان

عروس‌های تریاک، به جای خودکشی قیام می‌کنند

برگردان: اکبر فلاح‌زاده،رادیو زمانه، ٠١/٠٤/١٣٩١

عروس‌های تریاک، به جای خودکشی قیام می‌کنند

اکبر فلاح‌زاده ـ ملالی جویا، زن شجاع افغان را همه می‌شناسیم. او همیشه و همه‌جا بسیار پرشور ظاهر می‌شود و توجه همه را به خود جلب می‌کند.

مخالفانش به همین دلیل بر او خرده می‌گیرند و استهزایش می‌کنند، اما دوستان و هوادارانش او را تحسین می‌کنند. خانم ملالی بی‌باکانه حرف می‌زند. برای درک رفتار و گفتار متهورانه او نخست باید وضع رقت‌بار زنان در افغانستان را به خوبی شناخت. چندی پیش شبکه چهار تلویزیون انگلیس گزارش تکان‌دهنده‌ای از زندگی یک خانواده افغان نشان داد: یک زن جوان که مادر یک بچه خردسال بود، تحت فشار شوهرش تن‌فروشی می‌کرد تا خرج خانواده‌اش را در آورد.

"پردفترمې شوي بریدونه زما د مبارزې مخه نشي نیولای"

د ملالۍ جویا په وینا دا لومړې ځل نه دې، بلکه تر دې مخکې دا څو څو ګواښل شوې او د حملې هڅه ورباندې شوې.

ملالی جویا: پیمان استراتژیک معاهده ای ننگین و خیانت ملی است

به گفته وی، کشوری که در آن پایگاه نظامی یک کشور خارجی وجود داشته باشد، استقلال ندارد.

Raising My Voice by Malalai Joya: Book Review

According to Joya, many of those in power in Afghanistan today should more rightly be tried for war crimes.

Karenlee Thompson, Karenlee Thompson blog, January 8, 2012

Malalai Joya's book

Normally I like to review fiction; short stories and novels, with a predilection for anything Australian. So it is an extreme departure for me to feel impelled to review Raising my Voice by Malalai Joya (co-written by Derrick O’Keefe*). Subtitled, the extraordinary story of the Afghan woman who dares to speak out, it is a book not easily forgotten once read and I would recommend it to anyone interested in the history of Afghanistan but, more particularly, those who seek answers about Australia’s military involvement in the country.

In the introduction, Joya (a pseudonym adopted to protect her family) writes that most Afghans her age and younger “have known only bloodshed, displacement and occupation”, a situation that doesn’t appear to be going away any time soon given the current “foreign occupation and an American-backed government filled with warlords who are just like the Taliban” (1).

“I don’t fear death – I fear political silence”

An interview with Malalai Joya, Afghani activist and former politician.

Kate Laycock, New Statesman, January 2, 2012

The young man from the German Left Party is apologetic. "Malalai won't be able to meet you at 11. Her symbolic presence is needed on the boat," he explains. The boat turns out to be a small, two-storey river vessel decked out in peace flags and anti-war slogans. Bonn is once again playing host to an international conference on Afghanistan - ten years to the day since the first - and the nearest protesters have been able to come is a boat in the middle of the Rhine. I find Malalai Joya sipping herbal tea on the second deck. She looks tired. "I'm not tired. I am strong and fearless," she jokes.
