    An inspiring personal story by the most prominent Muslim woman activist and legislator for women’s rights in Pakistan. In the fall of 2001, a newlywed English professor took on a job editing the “women’s section” of one of Pakistan’s leading Urdu newspapers. She soon transformed pages of celebrity gossip and fashion advice into a vehicle for the investigation of the true lives of Pakistani women.
