Amineh-"No bigger than a Kalashnikow"
For two weeks in July 2021, the fate of the Swedish government rested on the shoulders of one of the country’s most outspoken and staunchly independent members of parliament. A former Kurdish peshmerga (guerilla fighter), Amineh Kakabaveh has lived a dramatic and inspiring life. Strong-willed and combative, her whole life has been a struggle for freedom and justice, particularly for the rights of women in traditional cultures and against honor crimes and religious fundamentalism. Today, her fight is more relevant than ever. Her biography, written together with the author Johan Ohlson, chronicles her extraordinary journey.
