A harsh new reality for Afghan girls
The new Afghan government has said it intends to severely limit the education of girls and women, even though the Taliban have claimed to eventually resume schooling.
When school resumed from grades 7 to 12 on Saturday, only boys were told to report their studies and the girls were at home. Boys and girls from grades 1 to 6 attend school, and students are separated by gender above grade 3.
Men are no longer allowed to teach girls and women, exacerbating the already serious teacher shortage. This, combined with restrictions on teacher salaries and the discontinuation of international aid, could have “immediate and serious” consequences for education in Afghanistan, a UNESCO report warns.
Inside story: When the Taliban were in charge from 1996 to 2001, they kept women and girls out of school. After the US-led aggression overthrew the Taliban’s rule, female students began attending schools and colleges. By 2018, the literacy rate of women in Afghanistan had reached 30 percent.
Macron’s Call for “European Sovereignty”
For French President Emmanuel Macron, the blunder over the loss of submarine deals with Australia suggests that NATO’s alliance is weakened by a lack of trust, Paris bureau chief Roger Cohen said. I am writing in news analysis.
Despite recalling France’s ambassadors from Australia and the United States, France was still able to withdraw from NATO’s integrated military headquarters structure. But foreign ministry officials have downplayed the possibility, even if its presence suggests to the extent that France feels humiliated. We will not immediately forget what appears to be an American slap.
In response, France hopes that Macron’s favorite words, “Europe’s strategic autonomy” and “Europe’s sovereignty,” will come true. However, insults are largely silent in Europe, although Commission President Ursula von der Leyen told CNN that “one of the member states is being treated in an unacceptable way.” I was hit.
More news from France: Macron represented his country yesterday because he tried to solve some of France’s toughest colonial heritage and abandoned the Algerian Arabs who fought for France in the Algerian War of Independence. I asked for “forgiveness”.
