Some women walked to the streets once more to protest the Taliban’s crackdown on women and denial of girls’ access to education.
On Sunday, 29th May, protesting women marched against the Taliban’s actions in the face of rising poverty and unemployment, as well as the Taliban’s actions against women, accusing the group of intruding in people’s private matters.
The Taliban suppressed a women’s demonstration in front of Maryam High School last week, and again women are claimed to have been suppressed by the Taliban today at the Sadarat square in Kabul’s second district.
“Instead of concentrating about addressing people’s issues and coming up with solutions to poverty and unemployment,” the demonstrators shouted, “those in power are doing their best to implement restrictions against women and have interference with the most private affairs.”
Rina Amiri, the US Special Envoy for Women and Human Rights in Afghanistan, recently tweeted that “addressing the security & needs of all Afghans should be what the Taliban focus on.”
