As thousands of Afghans fled the country after the Taliban, the Islamic fundamentalist group took control in a matter of days, a group of women showed courage and took out the first public protest demanding their rights in Kabul.
In a video shared by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad on Twitter, four Afghan women clad in black abayas and black and green hijabs were seen holding handwritten paper signs on a street in Kabul demanding that the Taliban give them proper rights.
The women can be heard demanding rights like proper social security, right to work, right to education and right to political participation while surrounded by Taliban fighters.
"All our achievements over the years should not be compromised and our basic rights," the women were heard shouting in the video.
Meanwhile, TOLO News, one of Afghanistan's major media outlets, has once again placed women anchors on the screen after they were briefly removed with the Taliban taking control over Afghanistan.
It may be mentioned, many Afghan women have fled the country since Sunday when the Taliban took control fearing for their life and safety.
There were reports of women being abducted from their homes and forcefully married to Taliban fighters. However, the Taliban have refuted such reports, saying that they would honour women's rights but within the norms of Islamic law.
