The campaign launched by activists on social media called “Let Girls Learn” ended on Sunday.
The organizers of the campaign said that the movement aimed at drawing attention to the reopening of the girls’ schools above grade six.
“My concern is that Afghanistan is losing a lot of things economically and as the sanctions continue, an internal tension increases. If there is no education for women, and the women are not educated, all of it will have a bad affect,” said Abdullah Baheer, an organizer of the campaign.
Afghan girls above grade six have been banned from going to school.
The US envoy for Afghan women and human rights, Rina Amiri, expressed concerns over restrictions against women in Afghanistan.
“Those who fear a radicalized Afghanistan should be alarmed by the Taliban’s policies against women & girls, denying them education, work in most sectors, even small joys such as the right to go to a park,” she said on Twitter. ”This extremism will lead to instability, poverty & more population flight.”
"Unfortunately, the situation of women in Afghanistan has deteriorated. It is full of deprivation. If the ruling party really believes in ensuring human rights in Afghanistan, they must do something to provide women with their rights instead of excluding them and violating their rights,” said Marriam Marouf, a women’s rights activist.
This comes as female students expressed frustration about their closed schools and said that that they are facing an uncertain future.
“Our request is that they don't take our education from us and reopen schools for girls,” said Najma, a student.
"We call on the Ministry of Education to reopen our schools which have been closed for one year," said Diana, a student.
