General Admission: $15 advance, $20 at the door

You are invited to hear from one of the most powerful young voices in international activism. At age 16, Brohi became an activist after her cousin was murdered by her uncle in an honor killing. From a tiny cement-roofed single room home in Karachi where she was allowed ten minutes of computer use per day, she created a Facebook campaign that went viral. She has embarked on a global quest to speak up for women and speak out against cultural practices that keep women down. Already one of Newsweek magazine’s “25 under 25 Women of Impact” and Forbes’ “30 Under 30 Social Entrepreneurs,” her book is “I Should Have Honor. A Memoir of Hope and Pride in Pakistan.” And she’s just getting started.

This is the second event in Women Lit, a new literary event series presenting female authors on lightning-hot topics for women and men today. It’s presented by the Bay Area Book Festival’s Women Lit society and KALW’s Inflection Point, the podcast and broadcast about how women rise up. Go to womenlit.org for a full schedule. KALW is a proud media sponsor of Women Lit.
