Journalist Kristof Reports in Pakistan
Videos below, especially the last two, are not the easy ones to watch. It’s really sad, but there are some signs of new hope going on; I hope. Reported by Nicholas D. Kristof from New York Times:
- Books Not Bombs (11/22/2008 )
While the U.S. government is fighting Islamic extremism in Pakistan with bombs, private donations are quietly financing a more important campaign: education.
- From Victim to Heroine (11/26/2008 )
From rape to slavery to honor killings, extreme oppression can be the norm for Pakistani women. But, Times Op-Ed columnist Nicholas D. Kristof reports from Pakistan that one courageous woman has built an oasis of hope in her village.
- Acid Attacks (11/29/2008 )
Westerners associate terrorism in Pakistan with suicide bombers, but the real emerging terrorist threat for Pakistani women is being disfigured by acid attacks, often by their own husbands, Nicholas D. Kristof says.
