Women in Afghanistan Took to the Streets on 9/11 to March in Favor of the Taliban

Objectivity 3.5 | Credibility 4.0 | Relevance 4.5

A group of about 300 women gathered in a Kabul university lecture theater and essentially pledged allegiance to the Taliban’s strict policies on gender segregation while waving Taliban flags. The room echoed with speakers angrily ranting towards the west as women got up and spoke in support of the Taliban. After the meeting, the women marched with pro-Taliban signs, one even stating that “Women who left Afghanistan cannot represent us.”
