Women from Afghanistan have expressed fears for their future after the government fell to the Taliban.
One woman has shared a video online, crying as she lamented her fate and that of others in Taliban.
She said: “We don’t count because we were born in Afghanistan.
“I cannot help crying. I have to wipe my tears to be able to film this video.
“No one cares about us. We’ll die slowly in history.”
There are concerns for women in Afghanistan based on the Taliban’s last rule from 1996 to 2001 when they banned girls from going to school, banned women from the work place, banned women from going out without a male relative escorting them, and made the burqa compulsory for all women.
Just last month, July 2021, Taliban fighters with guns went into banks and escorted the women working there out and asked them not to return to work, instead, they should send their male relatives to replace them.
Below is a video of an Afghan woman lamenting.
