Women in Afghanistan protest against violation of their rights


Women in Afghanistan protest against violation of their rights

Kabul, Nov 1 (Prensa Latina) Following calls to reopen girls' schools from sixth grade and restoration of employment for women, a group of women organized a protest in the capital to express their dissatisfaction. The protesters called on the Islamic Emirate (Taliban government) to create jobs for the sector and allow girls above the sixth grade to continue their studies.

The participants argued that the deprivation of these basic rights has widened the scope of poverty in the country.

We call on the United Nations and the international community to pay attention to us and save women from these violations of their rights, Marghalare, a former employee of the Ministry of Interior, said.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan’s Ministry of Economy reported that efforts continue to generate job opportunities for the female sector.

It has been 14 months since the Taliban returned to power in Afghanistan, which led to most women losing their jobs in government organizations.

At that time, women have not been allowed to go to work, and girls with more than a sixth grade education are prohibited from attending secondary school; measures that have been strongly criticized inside and outside the country.
