In September 2005, Afghanistan held its first parliamentary elections in 35 years. Among the candidates for 249 assembly seats was Malalai Joya, a courageous, controversial 27-year-old woman who had ignited outrage among hard-liners when she spoke out against corrupt warlords at the Grand Council of tribal elders in 2003.

In 2006, a documentary portraying the life and resistance of Malalai Joya Enemies of Happiness won the World Cinema Documentary Jury Prize in the Sundance Film Festival.

In 2009, Malalai Joya published her autobiography: “Raising my Voice: The Extraordinary Story of an Afghan Who Dares to Speak Out“. In german: “Ich erhebe meine Stimme – Eine Frau kämpft gegen den Krieg in Afghanistan”.
