Big news for Taliban women in Afghanistan

KABUL: Many public universities for women have reopened in Afghanistan.

The government has reopened several public women’s universities in response to growing international pressure on Afghanistan’s Taliban government to improve women’s education, according to details.

There are 39 public universities in Afghanistan, the Ministry of Education said on Wednesday, with eight of them reopening.

However, under the Taliban’s gender division policy, the university in the eastern province of Nangarhar will have separate morning and afternoon classes for male and female students.

The rest of the universities will be open for both male and female students from February 26, education ministry officials said. It should be noted that the return of female students to educational institutions has taken place after about 6 months, while secondary schools are still closed for female students.

When will girls be able to go to school in Afghanistan? Important announcement of Taliban

It may be recalled that in the middle of last month, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid had said that all schools for girls would be opened by the end of March.

The Ministry of Education is working to open schools for all girls and women after the new Afghan year begins March 21, he said. “We are not against education, we are looking for separate classes and hostels for girls’ education,” the spokesman said.
