Closure of Girls’ Schools Damages Afghanistan, Says UN Secretary General

Saturday, 09/03/2022

Depriving girls of education and closing girls' schools is “an unjustifiable violation of equal rights that damages” Afghanistan, said Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary-General.

Geterres added that Afghan girls have been locked out of the classroom and from going to school.

UN Secretary-General in a tweet stressed that girls belong at the school.

It has been more than a year since the Taliban, banned Afghan girls from continuing their secondary education in Afghanistan.

Despite domestic and international demand to reopen secondary schools for Afghan girls, the Taliban has not shown any signs or desire to relent.
