Women protest against girls’ schools’ closure in Kabul
The protestors were chanting, “We are tired of ignorance”, “Shame on the international community”
A small group of women took to the streets of Kabul on Saturday, March 26, 2022, to protest against the Taliban’s announcement banning teenage girls from going to schools.
The female protestors said access to education is an alienable right of humans and girls likewise the rest of the boys in Afghanistan have the right to get educated.
The protestors were chanting, “We are tired of ignorance”, “Shame on the international community”, “You took my land, don’t take my education”, “Seeking education is obligatory on male and female.”
The demonstration that was staged at the gate of the Ministry of Education in central Kabul was attended by parents, women activists, females, students, and a few young men.
“Education is our right, I want to go to school to study and make my future and the future of my country. I want to go to school as my brother does.” Said a student.
The protestors further said that there are no limitations on female education in other Islamic countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Indonesia so why should the Afghan girls not go to schools.
The Ministry of Education of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan announced on March 23rd that secondary schools for girls shall be closed until further notice.
