Norwan is an Afghan woman who is married and expecting her first child. She wants to write for AWWP in order to tell the world more about the situation of Afghan women.
I remember to clean my office desk, but forget to clean the dust from my heart. This is the main problem for me and may be for you, dear reader!
I love the people of Afghanistan so much. I love this country of stories and hope one day to write every story, describe every smile and every tear.
I am not a doll
Not a toy
I am a woman
There is a world of difference
Between me and you
My western sister
Behind the mountains
The clouds cry
That I can’t see the moonlight
We Women Will Win

You empowered me when you said, “If I die, I am sure you will find your way, my wise daughter.” I am so very thankful for your kindness—a gift that now, since I lost you, feels like a dream.
