The Underground Girls of Kabul: In Search of a Hidden Resistance in Afghanistan by Jenny Nordberg
I highly recommend this book! It did a great job of pulling me into the interesting story of life in Afghanistan for young girls who dress as boys for a wide variety of reasons. I feel as if it also prompted cool thoughts and discussions on gender, nature vs nurture, and what your choice means in the absence of freedom. It also broadens common perceptions on feminism, LGBTQ culture, and traditional gender roles. Overall I definitely recommend it for anyone interested in feminism, international development, gender, and/or the Middle East.
