Bitter Roots Tender Shoots

by Sally Armstrong

Penguin Group Canada | November 4, 2008 | Hardcover

Bitter Roots Tender Shoots is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

Everyone knows that Canada’s military is in Afghanistan, but what they don’t know is how much the average Canadian is contributing to aid efforts in that country. In Bitter Roots, Tender Shoots, respected journalist Sally Armstrong revisits Afghanistan to compare women’s lives pre- and post-Taliban, interviewing Afghan and Western women who are dedicated to improving health, education, culture, religion, and human rights. Armstrong connects these stories with the analysis of experts and considers the grassroots efforts of Canadians and the dedicated tax dollars being spent by the Canadian government. Bitter Roots, Tender Shoots is a moving portrayal of the lives of women and girls in Afghanistan in 2008.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heart Warming Sally Armstrong writes about human rights for women in Afghanistan, and the lack thereof. Canadian women's groups are financing schools for girls in Afghanistan where girls were not allowed to go to school under the rule of the Taliban. Sally's writings have made me aware of the help that our citizens and military are giving to women and girls in Afghanistan. Do read this book.
