As Meninas Proibidas de Cabul (Portuguese Edition) by Jenny Nordberg

By Jenny Nordberg

Nas cidades e aldeias afeg?s, ha raparigas que se movimentam livremente e sem medo de represalias. Num pais onde a mulher n?o tem valor nem privilegios, ha meninas que v?o a escola e brincam na rua. Elas existem mas ninguem sabe quem s?o. Porque? Porque est?o disfarcadas de rapazes. S?o as suas proprias familias a faze-lo ao abrigo de uma tradic?o secreta ancestral chamada bacha posh. Para uma familia afeg?, n?o ter filhos var?es e uma tragedia. De forma a contornar este estigma, muitos vestem e apresentam ao mundo as suas filhas como se fossem rapazes. Mas este estado de graca so dura ate a puberdade, altura em que s?o obrigadas a assumir a sua identidade feminina. Para as meninas que tiveram um vislumbre de autonomia, o choque e dilacerante. A jornalista premiada Jenny Nordberg deparou-se com este gown e ficou fascinada. Pouco a pouco, conseguiu reunir um grupo de mulheres corajosas. Os seus testemunhos s?o fascinantes e d?o-nos uma perspectiva totalmente nova sobre o que significa ser mulher e os sacrificios a que obriga ainda nos dias de hoje.
