Malalai Joya, like Malala Yousafzai, fought for the right of girls to go to school, teaching at secret underground schools during the Taliban’s rule in Afghanistan. Joya survived assassination attempts and was even elected to the Afghan Parliament back in 2005. She was then kicked out of her elected position and has been subjected to more threats and violence, forced now to live on the move, surrounded by bodyguards.
No Bush or Obama administration officials ever condemned her suspension from Parliament. In fact, last year, the US government refused to give her an entry visa for public speaking events, only relenting after a public pressure campaign demanded she be allowed to enter the United States.
In 2010, Time magazine included Malalai Joya in their “Top 100” list of the most influential people in the world, but then the write-up completely erased her anti-war, anti-NATO positions.
That is really the only way they know how to tell the story. For all the talk of “liberating women”, they actually prefer a one-dimensional image - they want victims, not empowered agents of their own liberation."
