Her work has focused throughout on how women and girls are disproportionately impacted by political instability and conflict, as well as the interplay between militarism, Islamism and women’s social status and rights. She is the author of Lipstick JihadHoneymoon in Tehran, and co-author, with Iranian Nobel Peace Laurate Shirin Ebadi, of Iran Awakening, which has been translated into over forty languages. She is a Pulitzer finalist and writes for the London Review of Books, the New York Times, among other publications.
