Gayle Tzemach Lemmon: The Real Lives of Afghan Women
Through the story of unlikely entrepreneur Kamila Sidiqi, former ABC News reporter Gayle Tzemach Lemmon offers an intimate look at the lives of women in Afghanistan. After the Taliban seized control of Kabul, reports Lemmon, Sidiqi was banned from school and confined to her home. She picked up a needle and thread, created a thriving business, and mobilized her community. Afghan women like Sidiqi, Lemmon writes in The Dressmaker of Khair Khana, are not victims. They are the glue that holds families together, the backbone and heart of their nation. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with University Book Store.
