Know Your Place by Golriz Ghahraman
We are such a fan of Golriz Ghahraman - a local Green MP who boldly stands up for the down and out in our society, and to protect our environment. And now, with this book, we learn all that she had to do to get to this place.
Golriz shares about her childhood as a refugee, found home in Aotearoa, her work as a human rights lawyer, her United Nations missions, and how she became the first refugee to be elected to the New Zealand Parliament.
Passionate and unflinching, Know Your Place is a story about breaking barriers, and the daily challenges of prejudice that shape the lives of women and minorities. At its heart, it's about overcoming fear, about family, and about finding a place to belong.
