Anxiety and fear for women in Taliban stronghold

AFP, 09 Oct 2021
In Kandahar, the traditional Taliban stronghold in southern Afghanistan, life is full of difficulties and anxiety for women. As the head of a girls-only primary school, Fereshteh Nazari has been able to return to work but along with her colleagues they have not received a salary in two months. Women teachers and girls have been excluded from returning to secondary education. Elsewhere in the ultra-conservative city, men gather to watch traditional wrestling while women are hardly seen in public spaces anymore. One man says: "The international community should not interfere in our internal matters."
