Your Call 070308 Women's Rights in the Middle East

What is life like for women in the Middle East, where they've been active agents of change for many decades? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation with an Iraqi and a Palestinian about women's rights. What role have women played in their national struggle? What challenges do they face? And how have the policies of the U.S. government affected their struggle? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
