(Backstory: I spent a year studying at the Estate of Portlandia, under the mentorship of the Great Dickie Maan Dyyke. I have a satchel full of scrolls that I helped verse, and never knew what to do with. Now that the opportunity presents itself, I shall read a section aloud.)

There is debate about whether Malalai Joya's actions should be considered humanistic or feminist in nature. Although Malalai Joya is deeply concerned for her country’s ability to self-govern, and instating true democracy has arguably been her chief mission over the last few years, Joya acknowledges the gender componant to every issue she fights for. She is not interested in prosecuting war lords for their crimes merely for revenge, or so that the ideal of justice is served; Joya knows that holding war criminals accountable for their crimes is a major step in ending the oppression of Afghan women who have been terrorized by these men for decades. Prosecuting the war lords would send a powerful message to everyone in the country that crimes against humanity—including the use of rape as a weapon—are intolerable. When Joya speaks of education reform in Afghanistan she always recognizes how the majority of girls in her country are denied any education altogether. When she speaks out against the bombings of her country Joya notes how the women that some other countries purport to be “liberating” are actually the innocent victims of their bombs. Yes, Malalai Joya is a humanist concerned with equal rights for all, and she is a person predominantly concerned for the people in her own country, but there is no way Joya could not be considered a feminist activist due to her incorporation of gender issues into every matter she addresses.
