Latifa unveiled

The must-read memoir by Latifa Woodhouse, 

Founder and President of Shared Humanity USA.

about the book


Latifa Unveiled is an engaging memoir that reveals the power of human spirit, one that bridges the gap between East and West, education and ignorance, and the past and future. Readers are taken behind the heavy doors of secrecy and see what life was like for a Pashtun girl growing up in Kandahar, the birthplace of the Taliban, who fought for her freedom. In the middle between two cultures and two radically different expectations of womanhood stands Latifa, a feminist before she even knew what that description meant. Her story is one that must be read.
