Publisher's Description

A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK

"Explains powerfully how Muslim women are affected by the rise of fundamentalism."—Dan Rather

In recent years, the expanding movement of militant Islam has changed the way millions think, behave, dress, and live, but nowhere has its impact been more powerfully felt than in its dramatic, often devastating effect on the lives of women. Award-winning journalist Jan Goodwin traveled through ten Islamic countries and interviewed hundreds of Muslim women, from professionals to peasants, from royalty to rebels.  The result is an unforgettable journey into a world where women are confined, isolated, even killed for the sake of a "code of honor" created and zealously enforced by men. 

Price of Honor brings to life a world in which women have become pawns in a bitter power game, and gives readers a provocative look inside Muslim society today—in their own words.

Author Bio

Award-winning journalist Jan Goodwin lived in the Middle East for four years, interviewing women under Islamic rule and spending time with freedom fighters in war-torn Afghanistan. In 2001, she returned to Afghanistan to document the changes that took place when the Taliban was removed from power. She was the executive editor of Ladies’ Home Journal for ten years and currently writes for The New York Times, the Daily News, Mirabella, New Woman, Cosmopolitan, and other national publications. She lives in New York City.

Editorial Reviews

“Goodwin reminds us that the Koran nowhere supports the brutal treatment of women, and the educated women she quotes make this point clear…The author takes us on a tour of the Muslim world, finding horrors almost past belief.” —The New Yorker
