RON JASMINE is the harrowing story of Tawakkol Karman- a Yemeni journalist and activist, who was one of three women awarded the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, becoming the first Arab woman to win the prize and the youngest person in history. Palgrave plans to publish in September 2014 and I am attaching the proposal.
The 34-year-old mother of three founded Women Journalists Without Chains in 2005. She has been a prominent activist and advocate of human rights and freedom of expression for the last five years, and led regular protests and sit-ins calling for the release of political prisoners. The Norwegian Nobel Committee cited Ms. Karman for her "non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women's rights to full participation in peace-building work." The Nobel jury specifically lauded Ms. Karman for playing "in the most trying circumstances, both before and during the Arab Spring... a leading part in the struggle for women's rights and for democracy and peace in Yemen."
Written with French journalist Diane Ducret, IRON JASMINE will tell Ms. Karman’s story and help bring her message to a global audience. The book will describe the exhilarating journey of this young, revolutionary woman, taking the reader inside the thrilling changes that have rocked the Arabic world in recent years. Drawing on her personal experiences, and using interviews with esteemed members of the Global Compact, the book will examine Karman’s particular vision for the future as the youngest member of that UN council, and explore her international efforts for world peace and human rights.
More than a memoir, this book is a peace universal declaration; it is not only about our past, but deals directly with future issues and provides Tawakkol’s inspiring answers.
