Last night I saw the documentary,The Beauty Academy of Kabul, --the story of six American hairdressers --funded by the Beauty Industry---who go to Kabul, Afghanistan in 2003 to open a beauty school.
Watching the documentary inspired me to do some research on the state of working women in Afghanistan. You can read that post on blogher.
You can listen to an interview on NPR's Fresh Air with the film's director Liz Mermin and academy teacher Shaima Ali.
If the documentary is not playing in your community, you can sign up for an email alert letting you known when it's on DVD.
