In "Beyond the Call: Three Women on the Front Lines in Afghanistan," journalist Eileen Rivers profiles three women who fought side by side with their male colleagues to help defeat the Taliban. Rivers joins us to talk about the work of these female soldiers -- from defending their units to getting intelligence from Afghan women. And a former U.S. Army veteran herself, Rivers will share how women in combat uniquely contribute to make the nation safer.
