Dozens of Afghanistan women have held a rare protest for the right to work under the new regime after announcements by the Taliban that they were close to forming a new government that faces enormous economic hurdles and deep public mistrust.
In the western city of Herat, the women took to the streets to protest for the right to work as well as the lack of women’s participation in the new government.
In the protest, female activists, students and government workers demanded that their rights be guaranteed while also warning that no government would be stable without female presence.
