Women have taken to the streets to demand their rights

“We want equal rights, we want women in government.”

That is the phrase that dozens of women chanted on Wednesday while demonstrating on a street in Kabul.

The day before, the Taliban had announced their interim cabinet of ministers.

There are no women in it and they have also eliminated the Ministry of Women’s Affairs.
