Market Women on US Radio

Thanks Kristen for the link to this story on the women in Monrovia's Duala Market from The World, a US public radio show.

Johnson Sirleaf: "The market women have been the vibrant element of the economy, even during the war. They were the ones who went out to fetch food for the family. They were sometimes conscripted into these armies as sex slaves, to provide food. But throughout the war or not, they have been the ones that have been there. I mean they feed the nation."
