    I received this book as part of the early reviewers through Librarything, though it doesn't seem to be an actual ARC. It was published on Sept 4th, and this copy does seem like a final copy. I enjoyed reading Khalida's story of her fight for women's rights in Pakistan, in particular,...

    This is the memoir of a young girl growing up in a tribal area of Pakistan. Khalida's father was sent to school as punishment, but instead found freedom in education. He went against his father and moved his family to Karachi so that his daughters could have an education. Khalida began...

    Author Khalida Brohi is on a mission, a dangerous one. She was born in Pakistan to a tribal family who observes tribal customs, but she was blessed to have a father who defied those very customs. She was taught to read, and had a loving father who told her that she should have honor. W...

    This book reminded me a lot of I Am Malala, which I enjoyed more. The most poignant parts of the book are when Brohi examines how honor killings were rationalized by people in her community, but I wanted more of how different people internalized these experiences and comparisons to how...

    This book opened my eyes to Pakistani culture. Richly steeped in tradition and honor, A culture also in many families repressive and abusive to women.. It was very refreshing and inspiring to hear the path taken by Khalida, and the support and love from her family that is still at work...

    As a little girl, her father wanted her to be a doctor, but she grew up to heal what doctor?s cannot: a healer of souls. A tragedy that began in love lead Khalida Brohi down a road that would help her change her family, change her country, change the world, and bring her love. Read m...

    2.5 I felt so many things reading this book. Anger, frustration, helplessness (hopelessness), etc. Many of things the author wrote I had already heard (or read) about. I'm not sure if she brought anything new to the table. But I tried to see things from her point of view and the points...

    Don't recall what brought me to this book but I was excited to read this. I'm not familiar with Brohi but I am familiar with some of the topics her book discusses: arranged marriages, honor killings, cross-religious and cross-cultural relations and her mission to educate her people and...

    Beautiful cover, I Should Have Honor: A Memoir of Hope and Pride in Pakistan, also great content. The story and life of Khalida Brohi, trials, tribulations, struggles to survive in a world that is not kind to women that don't follow harsh and strict rules that have been set in place fo...

    I probably have read over 30 memoirs in my life and this is the ONLY one that made me tear in the train and then at home then again at the ending and then again while writing this. As a Pakistani woman following khalida on social media, tedTalk and finally realizing she wrote a memoir ...

    I Should Have Honor I Should Have Honor: A Memoir of Hope and Pride in Pakistan is Khalida Brohi?s book about two kinds of honor, the honor that is dignity, honesty, and justice, the meaning espoused in the Holy Quran, and honor killings, the horrific practice of killing women who...

    Khalida Brohi could have her picture in a definition of courage. Born in a Pakistani family where women were valued, she experienced more freedom than most girls in her society. Yet, as she reached puberty, her options became less and she used her voice to speak out for the women of Pa...

    Powerful and personal. Brohi's strongest accomplishment with this book is the clear distinction she makes between her culture and the barbarism that threatens to destroy it from within. She strongly conveys that, despite our outsiders' perception, the rampant violence against women in ...

    I cannot stress enough how eye opening and important this book is. Khalida is a gift to the world. Though the content of this book can be extremely heavy, it is written in a way that is extremely digestible (despite the disturbing content.) This could easily be read by someone with a m...

    I was intrigued by the cover of this book and the title. But once I started reading this memoir it was captivating yet heartbreaking . Being from the same country as the author and knowing how honor killing is part of culture in some parts of the country. Not experiencing anything like...

    As a read the book is easy, simple, yet descriptive. As as a story it is amazing. What the author has accomplished for herself, her community, and in a ripple effect for the world tremendous. What Brohi has accomplished is inspiring, especially from such humble beginnings and against s...

    A quick and easy read, a memoir somewhat reminiscent of Malala, of a young Balochi girl, Khalida, encouraged to get educated by her father, and who becomes enmeshed with the whole system of honour killings in Pakistan after her uncle has her cousin killed for falling in love to a man s...

    Brohi offers a look at her life, the daughter of a progressive Pakistani father. Yet, her family is still very traditiional. Her mother was married off at 9 and bore her first child at 13. Her father was educated and emphasized the importance of that to his children. Although a girl, ...

    I loved this book. It?s inspiring. Khalida Brohi is fiercely independent and optimistic. She takes the devastating tragedy of an honor killing in her family and makes it her life?s mission to end honor killings. I was deeply touched by her loving her relationship with her father an...

    This book was very good. It is a lot about the beauty of the Pakistan culture and some of the downsides of living in Pakistan. Kalida was born in a village in pakistan this book tells the story of how important it is to recieve and education. She speaks for the abused women living in P...

    Such an amazing story of strength and courage. I was crying by the end. This is one of those books that everyone should read. P.S. Get the audiobook version. The author is the narrator and when you listen to her share her story you can hear the emotion of what she experienced ring ...

    I listened to this memoir, which was read by its author. Her emotions come through so completely as she tells the stories of honor killings in her family, and her journey through education to being a strong advocate for Pakistani women, respecting the strengths of the culture while fig...

    Powerful and personal. Brohi's strongest accomplishment with this book is the clear distinction she makes between her culture and the barbarism that threatens to destroy it from within. She strongly conveys that, despite our outsiders' perception, the rampant violence against women in ...

    Brohi offers a look at her life, the daughter of a progressive Pakistani father. Yet, her family is still very traditiional. Her mother was married off at 9 and bore her first child at 13. Her father was educated and emphasized the importance of that to his children. Although a girl, ...

    I loved this book. It?s inspiring. Khalida Brohi is fiercely independent and optimistic. She takes the devastating tragedy of an honor killing in her family and makes it her life?s mission to end honor killings. I was deeply touched by her loving her relationship with her father an...

    Beautiful cover, I Should Have Honor: A Memoir of Hope and Pride in Pakistan, also great content. The story and life of Khalida Brohi, trials, tribulations, struggles to survive in a world that is not kind to women that don't follow harsh and strict rules that have been set in place fo...

    I probably have read over 30 memoirs in my life and this is the ONLY one that made me tear in the train and then at home then again at the ending and then again while writing this. As a Pakistani woman following khalida on social media, tedTalk and finally realizing she wrote a memoir ...

    I Should Have Honor I Should Have Honor: A Memoir of Hope and Pride in Pakistan is Khalida Brohi?s book about two kinds of honor, the honor that is dignity, honesty, and justice, the meaning espoused in the Holy Quran, and honor killings, the horrific practice of killing women who...

    Khalida Brohi could have her picture in a definition of courage. Born in a Pakistani family where women were valued, she experienced more freedom than most girls in her society. Yet, as she reached puberty, her options became less and she used her voice to speak out for the women of Pa...

    Powerful and personal. Brohi's strongest accomplishment with this book is the clear distinction she makes between her culture and the barbarism that threatens to destroy it from within. She strongly conveys that, despite our outsiders' perception, the rampant violence against women in ...

    I cannot stress enough how eye opening and important this book is. Khalida is a gift to the world. Though the content of this book can be extremely heavy, it is written in a way that is extremely digestible (despite the disturbing content.) This could easily be read by someone with a m...

    I was intrigued by the cover of this book and the title. But once I started reading this memoir it was captivating yet heartbreaking . Being from the same country as the author and knowing how honor killing is part of culture in some parts of the country. Not experiencing anything like...

    As a read the book is easy, simple, yet descriptive. As as a story it is amazing. What the author has accomplished for herself, her community, and in a ripple effect for the world tremendous. What Brohi has accomplished is inspiring, especially from such humble beginnings and against s...

    A quick and easy read, a memoir somewhat reminiscent of Malala, of a young Balochi girl, Khalida, encouraged to get educated by her father, and who becomes enmeshed with the whole system of honour killings in Pakistan after her uncle has her cousin killed for falling in love to a man s...

    Brohi offers a look at her life, the daughter of a progressive Pakistani father. Yet, her family is still very traditiional. Her mother was married off at 9 and bore her first child at 13. Her father was educated and emphasized the importance of that to his children. Although a girl, ...

    I loved this book. It?s inspiring. Khalida Brohi is fiercely independent and optimistic. She takes the devastating tragedy of an honor killing in her family and makes it her life?s mission to end honor killings. I was deeply touched by her loving her relationship with her father an...

    Author Khalida Brohi is on a mission, a dangerous one. She was born in Pakistan to a tribal family who observes tribal customs, but she was blessed to have a father who defied those very customs. She was taught to read, and had a loving father who told her that she should have honor. W...

    This book reminded me a lot of I Am Malala, which I enjoyed more. The most poignant parts of the book are when Brohi examines how honor killings were rationalized by people in her community, but I wanted more of how different people internalized these experiences and comparisons to how...

    This book opened my eyes to Pakistani culture. Richly steeped in tradition and honor, A culture also in many families repressive and abusive to women.. It was very refreshing and inspiring to hear the path taken by Khalida, and the support and love from her family that is still at work...

    As a little girl, her father wanted her to be a doctor, but she grew up to heal what doctor?s cannot: a healer of souls. A tragedy that began in love lead Khalida Brohi down a road that would help her change her family, change her country, change the world, and bring her love. Read m...

    I Should Have Honor I Should Have Honor: A Memoir of Hope and Pride in Pakistan is Khalida Brohi?s book about two kinds of honor, the honor that is dignity, honesty, and justice, the meaning espoused in the Holy Quran, and honor killings, the horrific practice of killing women who...

    Khalida Brohi could have her picture in a definition of courage. Born in a Pakistani family where women were valued, she experienced more freedom than most girls in her society. Yet, as she reached puberty, her options became less and she used her voice to speak out for the women of Pa...

    Powerful and personal. Brohi's strongest accomplishment with this book is the clear distinction she makes between her culture and the barbarism that threatens to destroy it from within. She strongly conveys that, despite our outsiders' perception, the rampant violence against women in ...

    I cannot stress enough how eye opening and important this book is. Khalida is a gift to the world. Though the content of this book can be extremely heavy, it is written in a way that is extremely digestible (despite the disturbing content.) This could easily be read by someone with a m...
