The B List with Bri Lee & Sanam Maher

Caption on bottom

Bri is in conversation with her first international guest Sanam Maher, author of A Woman Like Her: The Short Life of Qandeel Baloch.  

From life in the village where Baloch grew up in the backwaters of rural Pakistan, to her stint in a women’s shelter after escaping her marriage, then to her incarnation as a social media sensation. They called her Pakistan’s Kim Kardashian, they said she’d do anything for attention. When she was murdered, they were transfixed by the footage of her body.  Drawing on interviews and in-depth research, Sanam’s book pieces together the life of Qandeel Baloch, the world’s most unlikely feminist icon.
