No Girls Allowed? Afghan Schools under Taliban
No girls were seen by someone, there are mostly 16, 17 years old. They’re precisely the kind of age that we assumed from the outside that the Taliban wouldn’t allow to come to school at all. It turns out that the situation is much more complicated than that.
It’s all really kind of the reverse of what they assume from the outside. The Taliban are keeping silent and it’s mostly the girls families that say to them no. They think it’s too dangerous for them to go to school.
