This week on War News Radio, we hear what an Iraqi women’s rights activist is doing to change laws and attitudes in her country. Gabriel Ramirez reports.

Then, we talk with Ellen Spiro, co-director of the documentary Body of War, about how the young veteran featured in the film overcame depression to become an anti-war activist. Hansi Lo Wang reports.

Finally, we hear the story of an aid worker in Kabul who found life in the Afghan capital both frustrating and rewarding. Emily Hager reports.
