THE WAR TO BE HER

ImageComingSoon

Her home is “the most dangerous place on earth,” where sports are decried as un-Islamic, and girls rarely leave their homes. But she did. She’s a world-renowned athlete and a flashpoint in her country’s battle over feminine identity.  She is Maria Toorpakai Wazir, the young woman known as Genghis Khan.
