Deprived Of Education, Afghan Women And Girls Study At Female-Only Kabul Library
A new, female-only library in Kabul has become an educational oasis for Afghan girls and women who have been denied access to further learning. Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan in 2021, most schools for girls past sixth grade have remained closed. The Zan Library opened its doors in August and is a place where females can continue their studies on their own. But there are concerns that Taliban authorities could shut down the library at any time.
