Dedica meets: Malalai Joya


Malalai Joya
Malalai Joya, an Afghan politician and activist, was born in the province of Farah, Afghanistan. After the Soviet invasion, she fled with her family to a refugee camp in Iran, and later moved to Pakistan.
In 1998 she returned to Afghanistan, where the Taleban had by now gained power, and began to work as an activist for human rights and women's rights.
In 2003 she became a member of Parliament, where she denounced the presence of "warlords and war criminals" in the Afghan Parliament. She was suspended, then reinstated, and finally expelled from Parliament in 2007. Since then she has received numerous death threats, and today lives under escort.
Her courageous stance has earned her numerous honours and international acclaim.
In 2010, with Derrick O'Keefe, she co-wrote "A Woman Among Warlords: The Extraordinary Story of an Afghan Who Dared to Raise Her Voice".

Marta Serafini
Marta Serafini works on the Foreign desk at the "Corriere della Sera" national newspaper, writing about terrorism and international relations.
She was a member of the [Italian] Committee for Jihadism and the Prevention of Radicalization set up by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers.
Her instant book Maria Giulia che divenne Fatima (Corriere della Sera, 2015) was based on a Skype conversation with the first Italian jihadist. Together with other journalists from “Corriere” and “27esima Ora”, the blog dedicated to these matters, she worked on a collective inquiry into violence against women, which was later turned into a book called Questo non è amore (Marsilio, 2012).
