Indonesia: Meet the women who enforce Sharia Law

Our reporters take to the road with a Sharia Law patrol unit in the Indonesian city of Bande Aceh. And there's not a man among them!

And we meet Las Patronas, a group of Mexican women who're giving food to illegal immigrants as they attempt to cross the U.S. border.
