Kabul: Afghan women have been struggling for their rights, recently, they have launched a cultural spot, under the name of Women’s Library in Bamyan province.
The purpose of establishing this library is to increase the scientific capacity of girls and women, to fight against illiteracy and to institutionalize the reading culture, according to the library owners.
Nikbakht Sana, the person in charge of this library, told local media “Currently, there are 500 different books in this library.” She added that they are also trying to provide internet and computers in this library.
She said “Due to the restrictions of the Taliban, educational and educational centers are closed to girls above the sixth grade and female students, and we wanted to create space for women to study.”
Nikbakht asks the Taliban government to open the gates of educational centers to girls and allow women to work.
