Afghan Women Call for Access to Schools, Universities

A number of female students have reiterated the need to allow their access to schools.

They say that even though schools have been closed for more than two years, they still do not know of any future plans to reopen them.  

Meanwhile, the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Islamic Emirate on X said education in the country is important.

More than two years have passed since girls were banned from education in the country, but there is no sign of reopening of schools to girls above sixth grade in the country.

Sixteen-year-old Mursal says life has faded over the past two years and her dreams have been ruined.

“I've lost my spirit because I have no hope for the future, and the color of my life has actually changed when they closed schools. My worries grow every day as to whether or not schools will open,” said Mursal, a student.

Meanwhile, some other students are calling on the Islamic Emirate not to take away women's opportunity to train and work in the country.

"I want the islamic government to provide work and education opportunities for all girls so the girls are educated and not discouraged,” said Maryam, a student.

"I want the Islamic Emirate to open the doors of schools and universities in the framework of sharia,” said Marhaba, a student.

But the Deputy Foreign Minister on X published two images emphasizing the need to continue educating women in the country. 

"Education is something that no one can take away from you. A good education can change anyone, and a good teacher can change everything," said Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs.

"When this restriction is imposed on girls, and schools and universities are closed, girls' depression, despair and demotivation continue to rise, and it causes further harm," said Firoza Amini, women rights activist.

The Deputy Foreign Minister of the Islamic Emirate has spoken of the education of women in the country as it has been more than 760 days since the closure of schools to girls above sixth grade in the country, which has caused internal and external reactions, but the Islamic Emirate has always said that the issue of banning the education of women in the country is not permanent.
