Afghan Women 'Unveiled'

Photographer Harriet Logan first visited Afghanistan in 1997, when the Taliban had been in power for only 15 months. She made friends with women who were compelled to wear a head-to-toe veil in public -- but in private, showed a very different face. NPR's Jacki Lyden talks with Logan about her new book, Unveiled: Voices of Women in Afghanistan.
