Taliban schools upend ‘destructive day’ for Afghan girls – Malala Yousafzai

Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai told the BBC that the Taliban will continue to come up with excuses to keep girls out of elementary school.

Since the Taliban took over in August 2021, only girls’ primary schools and all boys’ schools have remained open across much of Afghanistan.

Girls’ high schools were due to open on Wednesday, but the Taliban reversed their decision, saying they have yet to make a decision on the uniform girls should wear.

Speaking to BBC World News correspondent Yalda Hakim, Ms Yousafzai said the Taliban envisioned an Afghanistan without educated women.
