Tom is joined by Crystal Bayat for the first hour of the show. She shares her life story, growing up in Afghanistan and her campaigning for education for women. She then discusses her protest in Afghanistan last year which was featured by the New York Times and the BBC. She talks us through the threats to her life that preceded that protest and being forced to leave the country to go to the US. In the last 40 minutes, other speakers join in to share their thoughts on education in Afghanistan, including one speaker who is living in Afghanistan now but whose identity is hidden.
