The Dressmakers of Khair Khana tells the story of Kamila Sidiqi, the unlikely breadwinner in a burqa who became an entrepreneur under the Taliban. Desperate to supprt her six brothers and sisters at home and banished from Kabul's streets by the Taliban, she started a dressmaking business in her living room which offered work for 100 women in her community. Together these unsing heroines made the difference between survival and starvation for their families despite - and sometimes because of - the Taliban. Dressmaker tells their storu for the first time. The book shows us the resilient survivors of war who demand our respect. Theirs is a universal tale of what women do to pull families through no matter how impossible the circumstance, and the power of one to create hope for many.
At a time when U.S. soldiers continue their flight in this war-hardened country, The Dressmakers of Khair Khana shines a light on the lives and struggles of those who believe a brighter future for Afghanistan is possible.
