Afghan women have been barred from receiving higher education by the Taliban authorities with immediate effect, which UN Sec Gen Antonio Guterres described as another “very troubling… broken promise.”
US National Security Council spokesperson Adrienne Watson added that this “deplorable action” means the Taliban “will be further alienated from the international community and denied the legitimacy they desire.”
Girls have already been blocked from attending middle school and high school in Afghanistan since the Taliban assumed power last year, while women are banned from gyms and parks.
