US, UN Reiterate Call for Education of Girls

On the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, UNAMA, the US embassy for Afghanistan and OCHA reiterated their support for women and girls’ education in Afghanistan.

The UN mission in Afghanistan in an X post said that the entire world is backing women and girls in Afghanistan.

“On International Day of Women in Science and every day, we stand with Afghan women and girls as they strive for education, including in the sciences, to tackle both national and global challenges,” Wrote UNAMA, quoting Roza Otunbayeva, the head of UNAMA.

“Until when must we stay at home like this? We should be allowed to get an education. If the situation remains the same, we will have an uneducated generation,” said Yalda, a university student.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) called for the full and equal access of women and girls to education, to contribute to Afghanistan’s progress across all aspects.

“Full and equal access to women and girls in science, technology, and innovation makes a crucial contribution not only to the economic development of a country but also to progress across all aspects of society,” wrote OCHA on X.

“I ask the Islamic Emirate to allow girls to seek education because these girls will make the future of our country,” said Sanam, a university student.

The US embassy for Kabul on the other hand said empowering women and girls in science contributes to a brighter future for the country.

“On International Day of Women and Girls in Science let's recognize that Afghan women and girls are just as capable as anyone in science if given a chance. Empowering women and girls in science contributes to a brighter future for Afghanistan,” said US embassy for Kabul on X.

“If we want to develop our country, the Islamic Emirate should reopen schools and universities for girls,” said Zakiullah Muhammad, a university lecturer.

The Islamic Emirate insisted on the importance of education, saying that women can access only those fields of education which are in line with the Islamic law.

“Education is important in all aspects of life, but our sisters can only access those fields of education which are admissible for them in Islamic Sharia,” said Zabiullah Mujahid, the spokesperson of the Islamic Emirate.

It comes as the doors of secondary schools and universities for girls are still closed and the caretaker Afghan government has yet to give any deadline for their resumption.
