Weekend Edition Saturday aired a feature about a group of Iraqi women in the Anbar province who have been playing team handball in secret for several years. Despite lousy conditions and restrictions on their access to sport generally, these women are trying to play in the national championships.
I haven't listened to the piece yet myself, but I am looking forward to it.
