Written by on October 18, 2022

A group of Afghan women marched the streets of Kabul, Afghanistan’s capital on Tuesday to demand the right to education following the expulsion of female students from the Kabul University dormitory.

According to media reports, the few dozen of women were carrying signs reading: “Education is our red line” and rending chants that the world has forgotten them under the Taliban.

The Ministry of Higher Education said Monday that an undisclosed number of students “who violated the rules and regulations of the university’s dormitory” had been expelled from their accommodations.
