This chapter presents the author's account of her relationship with two Afghan women, Jamila Afghani, founder and director of an Afghan-based educational NGO then called the Noor Educational Center (NEC), and Marzia Basel, the judge and founder of the Afghan Women Judges Association. These women would eventually ask her to write about their personal stories and political perspectives on Afghan women's tumultuous and contested opportunities and responsibilities, a request that she honored as the core and inspiration of this book. She realized that their journey together—more metaphorical than literal but also involving much travel and change of scene—would take them over such contested terrain.

Keywords:   Jamila Afghani, Marzia Basel, Afghan women, Noor Educational Center, Afghan Women Judges Association
