The "Spontaneous Movement of Afghan Women Activists," in cooperation with the Crystal Bayat foundation, have established the "Women's Library."
According to the movement's members, the goal of establishing this library is to promote reading among women and girls who are deprived of the right to education and work.
They expressed concerns over the closure of schools above sixth grade, saying that in the past year, women and girls have faced a rollback on their rights.
"The goal of establishing this library is to promote reading among Afghan women and to provide Afghan women and girls with the opportunity to study and receive an education," said Zhulia Parsi, a member of the movement.
"During the past year, we raised our voices many times for the opening of schools, as well as over the systematic exclusion of women," said Laila Basim, a member of the movement.
Participants at the opening welcomed the creation of the library.
"It was a really good thing that the library was opened here and that it can encourage others to come and learn something," said Gita, a participant.
Since the Islamic Emirate took power more than a year ago, girls above sixth grade are no longer allowed to attend school, and some women are not permitted to work.
