Kabul: A group of women on Sunday demonstrated in Kabul city of Afghanistan against the ban imposed by the Taliban regime on female education, media reports said.

Scores of women gathered in the capital, Kabul, on Sunday, for a peaceful march in response to the continued ban on women’s education. Their chanting slogans demanded to reopen of schools and universities for girls, reports Khaama Press.

However, the women protesters were attacked and dispersed by the Taliban security forces, the Afghanistani news agency reported.

According to a protester who spoke to Khaama Press under anonymity, the “women’s movement for justice” was responsible for organizing the demonstrations and added at least three protesting women were detained during the rally.

The Taliban forces came to power in Afghanistan in 2021.
