UN requests that girls’ schools be reopened as the new school year gets underway.

According to UNAMA, the ban on girls attending school is “unjustifiable and harmful.”

On March 20, the group posted on its official social media page, X: “Girls over the age of 12 have been barred from attending schools and universities for over 900 days.”

UNAMA said that the Taliban should lift the ban on girls attending certain schools, highlighting the importance of education for all residents.

Today, March 20, was the first day of the new school year, and there were no girls in grades higher than sixth.

Girls who are older than the sixth grade are not permitted to attend school for the third academic year.

UNAMA has asked time and time again for Afghan females to be let back into schools and colleges, as have many other human rights groups and nations throughout the world. The Taliban has not, however, taken any action to permit girls to return to colleges and universities, even in spite of these petitions.
