Joya is a courageous Afghan woman who was elected to the (U.S. installed) Afghan Parliament.  In her first speech she spoke out against the warlord government and was silenced.  She never stopped and was eventually thrown out of the parliament.  She faces death threats and cannot live openly in Afghanistan.  Yet she continues on.
