Read to Support Afghan Women and Children

In keeping with our core values of joy, justice, and community, we stand with the women and children of Afghanistan. We've carefully curated this list of books about the experiences of women and girls seeking an education in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and elsewhere in the face of violent resistance by the Taliban and other oppressive forces. We will donate 30% of the retail sales of books on this list to the Vital Voices Emergency Fund for Women and Girls in Afghanistan. For more information on organizations providing relief to the Afghan people right now, please visit this list from the Alliance for International Women's Rights.
