The Dressmaker of Khair Khana

Former ABC journalist Gayle Tzemach Lemmon tells the true story of Kamila Sidiqi, an Afghan woman who started a dressmaking business, earning enough to eventually support her and her five siblings. In The Dressmaker of Khair Khana, Lemmon recounts Sidiqi’s story: She was banned from teaching and confined to her home when the Taliban rose to power, so she created an alternative career for herself.
