The re-birth of a nation : Pakistan's Islamization -- The challenge of fundamentalism -- Better government, better lives : the campaign to increase women's political participation -- A rose by any other name-- : the campaign against sexual harassment -- The unfulfilled promise of NGOs
How do NGOs overcome the suspicion and perception of them as Western agents? What means do they employ to convince people that, contrary to common perceptions, they are not there to "lead women astray from Islam," nor are they going to make them "shameless"? And how, in a country like Pakistan, where poverty, violence, fundamentalism, and ethnic conflict are widespread, do women's NGOs convince people that women's issues merit attention in the first place? This book uncovers the skillful maneuvering that women's NGOs have to perform in order to survive a hostile environment
