Meet The Women Who Fought The Taliban 9

In the battle against the Taliban, women serving in the armed forces have played a key role in circumventing a patriarchal society to gather information from Afghan women. Eileen Rivers of USA Today – and a veteran of Operation Desert Storm – joins us to introduce us to a trio of military women who served in what are known as Female Engagement Teams. Her new book is called “Beyond the Call: Three Women on the Front Lines in Afghanistan” (Da Capo).
