A Muslim Woman's Struggle Against Violence and OppressioneBook - 2011
PURPLE DANDELION is the true story of Farida Sultana, an extraordinary Muslim woman. Her arranged marriage to a doctor at the age of 18 took her to worn-torn Iran with her husband and young daughter, then to the UK and finally to New Zealand. Being a survivor of violence and abuse, Farida emerged as a strong advocate against all forms of violence and cultural and religious oppression against women, driving her to initiate Shakti, the largest immigrant women's organisation in New Zealand.
