The exclusion of women and girls from education is a violation of their human rights and detrimental to the development of Afghanistan as a whole. It is important for all individuals to have access to education and opportunities to reach their full potential, regardless of their gender. It is crucial for the international community to take action to ensure that women and girls are able to access education and other opportunities.
The Taliban’s treatment of women and girls during their rule in Afghanistan had severe restrictions on their rights and opportunities. These restrictions included a ban on girls’ education and a requirement that women be fully covered and accompanied by a male guardian when in public.
