Podcast: ‘My dream is to see a world where no girls are deprived of education’

With the Taliban’s takeover of Kabul on August 15, 2021, history repeated its dark side for Afghan women. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has once again issued numerous orders for the systematic exclusion of Afghan women from society, including bans on speaking loudly or laughing in public, wearing high heels, displaying women’s names and photos in public, as well as attending education.

In this podcast episode, Hoda Javdani interviews an Afghan girl who risks her life to attend school secretly under Taliban rule for a chance at freedom.
