“What is the difference between men and women? In Afghanistan, it’s freedom”, Jenny Nordberg, author.
In the Freedom Books Section, PFF recognises the work of courageous and inquisitive authors and journalists, who show the way the world order is established.
By blatantly disagreeing with it and giving the examples of brave people (women especially), be it in Afghanistan, Russia, India or Turkey, the authors make a firm stance on freedom of expression and freedom to be a woman.
Their characters by not knowing their rights, living in cultures where women are less worth than men or simply by speaking up, trying to find ways to survive (The Underground Girls of Kabul), challenge establishment (Words Will Break Cement), learn that rape is a crime which is not committed by them (Priya Shakti), or that their rights should be equal to that of men’s (Uprising).
This year PFF nominates:
1. Uprising: A New Age Is Dawning for Every Mother’s Daughter, Sally Armstrong
2. Words Will Break Cement: The Passion of Pussy Riot, Masha Gessen
3. The Underground Girls of Kabul: The Hidden Lives of Afghan Girls Disguised as Boys, Jenny Nordberg
4. Priya Shakti, Ram Devineni
5. They Can Live in the Desert but Nowhere Else: A History of the Armenian Genocide, Dr Ronald Grigor Suny
6. Islam and Free Speech, Andrew C. McCarthy
