Salt Lake City, Utah – Monday, Doug talks to journalist Gayle Lemmon about the lives of Afghani women during the 5 years of Taliban rule. Lemmon's new book is the story of Kamila Sadiqi, who had to provide for her family despite the Taliban's restrictions that kept women out of public. Sadiqi set up a thriving business at home, saving not only her family, but also the families of the women she employed. It's a story of resilience, entrepreneurship and sisterhood - one that Lemmon says is universal in times of war.
