Kvindernes krig

Anne-Cathrine Riebnitzsky

In Helmand, a female Danish officer establishes contact to the Afghan women, who fight against oppression, domestic violence and Taliban’s reign of terror. They secretly begin to collaborate. The women receive the necessary help to start up dressmaker’s workrooms as well as other projects. The international forces are these women’s only chance to get rid of Taliban.

After having spent 14 months in the province of Helmand, Anne-Cathrine Riebnitzsky has written a strong, personal account of the women’s struggle for a better life. It is also a gripping story about being a female soldier in Afghanistan, about the ever present risk and about the grief for fallen friends.

From the book
"I let go of the bolt and it snaps back into place with a harsh, metallic sound. It’s not the first time I’ve heard it (...) I hope I never have to shoot. That’s not what I’m here for. I’m here to talk to people. But there are no guarantees. I’ll be lucky to avoid combat."
