Afghanistan’s Taliban-imposed prohibition on women attending universities has sparked international outrage and left many Afghans feeling hopeless. The statement was made on Tuesday by the minister of higher education, who stated that it will be implemented effective immediately. Since girls have already been kept out of secondary schools since the Taliban returned last year, the prohibition significantly restricts women’s access to education.” They destroyed the only bridge that could connect me with my future,” one Kabul University student said.

The US on Tuesday roundly condemned the Taliban’s actions and said such a move “will come with consequences for the Taliban”.”The Taliban cannot expect to be a legitimate member of the international community until they respect the rights of all in Afghanistan,” said Secretary of State Antony Blinken in a statement.
