Críticas:

"A fascinating story...not only one of horror but of great humanity."
--The New York Times Book Review
"Told in Kassindja's voice, this memoir is also a precious lesson about cultures, women's human rights policy, and perhaps most important, faith in God and humanity.These elements, fluidly interwoven, create an incredible narrative."
--The Washington Post
"Moving and powerful."
--Newsweek
"An astonishing true story . . .A sprawling adventure . . .Full of good guys and bad guys, lush landscapes, barren prison cells, love, courage, despair, and cruelty."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer
"A straightforward, gripping narrative, not easily forgotten."
--Essence"

Reseña del editor:

For Fauziya Kassindja, an idyllic childhood in Togo, West Africa, sheltered from the tribal practices of polygamy and genital mutilation, ended with her beloved father's sudden death. Forced into an arranged marriage at age seventeen, Fauziya was told to prepare for "kakia, " the ritual also known as female genital mutilation. It is a ritual no woman can refuse. But Fauziya dared to try.
This is her story--told in her own words--of fleeing Africa just hours before the ritual "kakia" was to take place, of seeking asylum in America only to be locked up in U.S. prisons, and of meeting Layli Miller Bashir, a law student who became Fauziya's friend and advocate during her horrifying sixteen months behind bars. Layli enlisted help from Karen Musalo, an expert in refugee law and acting director of the American University International Human Rights Clinic. In addition to devoting her own considerable efforts to the case, Musalo assembled a team to fight with her on Fauziya's behalf. Ultimately, in a landmark decision in immigration history, Fauziya Kassindja was granted asylum on June 13, 1996. Do They Hear You When You Cry is her unforgettable chronicle of triumph.
