Afghanistan - Women

NPR's John Burnett visits a school on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border where Afghan women and girls are learning to read and write. The classes are sponsored by the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan and they would be illegal in the Taliban-controlled areas of Afghanistan. Some of the women describe their treatment under the harsh Taliban rule.
