 At First, A Bad Woman’s Story, 9780199407002. This book is Kishwar Naheed’s response to those who are quick to label a woman as bad. It is a searing indictment of a society that uses customs, religion, and even brute force to keep women down. Although She hits out hard and fearlessly at social and political injustices.

It is what you would expect of one of Pakistan’s leading feminist poets who is known for her defiance and outspokenness inspite of being born to a conservative family in pre-partition India. Rich in literary, historical, and cultural allusions, And A Bad Woman’s Story is written in a punchy, witty style that keeps the reader engaged and entertained throughout the book. Secondly
