ıBroken Bangles is the story of how I found a place in the corner of these womenıs lives for a short whileıı From the eccentric comforts of Mona Lisa guest house in Dhaka to the dusty frontier town of Peshawar, Hanifa Deen traveled through Bangladesh and Pakistan to discover the many faces of Muslim women today, meeting and talking to mavericks, feminists and starry-eyed foreign wives; actresses and socialites; urban professionals and rural women who had never left their villages. With humour, compassion and insight, Hanifa Deen relates stories of their fight against oppression, of the friendships of women, of the joys and frustrations of the extended family, of the unwritten laws that govern womenıs lives and the violence that can threaten them. She also stumbles on the trail of a mysteryıthe murder of Yasmeen, an innocent girl whose death galvanized a nation and symbolizes the danger women face when they step outside the ıcircle of protectionı. Broken Bangles is a much-needed book in the subcontinent today, when womenıs voices are often the last to be heard and their concerns almost an afterthought.
