3:10 Female Soldiers - Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

For almost ten years, U.S Special Forces working in Afghanistan were working blind, unable to gather intelligence from the largest group of citizens in the country, women.  When soldiers raided compounds or entered homes they were not allowed to make contact with Afghan women. In 2010, 100 women were deployed alongside the Army Rangers as so called "Cultural Support Teams" to gather information from wives and daughters. First Lieutenant Ashley White was killed by an improvised explosive device (IED) while working on the Cultural Support Team.  Author  Gayle Tzemach Lemmon describes the important role these sister soldiers played in her book, "Ashley's War: The Untold Story of a Team of Women Soldiers on the Special Ops Battlefield".

3:30 Our Changing World - Alison Ballance
