Episode Summary

Pakistan: Women vs. Taliban
Women across Pakistan are galvanized to act by the threat of harsh Taliban-style Islamic law, recently instituted in parts of northwest Pakistan. Yet even among women in the region, the Taliban have defenders: for some, it's just political expediency; for others, it's a path to justice in a corrupt court system. But the curtailment of rights is unacceptable to a young generation of Pakistanis, who are taking to the streets. This episode includes a special Global Pulse Skype link to Islamabad to let them speak for themselves.SOURCES: Samma TV, Pakistan; GEO TV, Pakistan; France 24, France; ABC News,U.S.; CNN, U.S.; BBC, U.K.; Al Jazeera English, Qatar.Read more on the Huffington Postmoreless
