Afghanistan has long been in upheaval and women there have historically faced brutal oppression. In 2002, Deborah Rodriguez sought to change that...with a comb, some scissors and little hair gel. Rodriguez helped found and direct a beauty school in Kabul, a project that brought economic independence to scores of Afghan women. She tells her story and their story in her book, Kabul Beauty School. Before she makes her appearance at Joseph Beth booksellers, we'll talk with her Tuesday morning at 9.
