Videos shared on social networks show protesters criticizing the Taliban’s ban on women’s education and employment, chanting slogans such as “Women are not expendable.”
These women described the deprivation of girls from universities and schools by the Taliban as “ignorance.”
The demonstrators emphasized that women constitute “half of society” and should not be ignored.
In the last two years, the Taliban has imposed severe restrictions against women in work, education and social participation.
In recent months, Afghan women in various cities have raised their voices in protest against Taliban policies. However, the Taliban’s response to these protests has been arrests, suppression, and violence.
