This Afghan woman is in hiding but still fighting for women's education

She went into hiding after the Taliban seized control of Afghanistan. But activist Pashtana Durrani isn't leaving, instead she's making sure women and girls have access to education.

    She's incredibly brave. Can't imagine the strength it must take to do what she's doing.

    I tell my daughter how it is a privilege to get an education in this country in others women and girls are controlled with the denial of education

    Afghanistan is not only Kabul And killing tens of thousands of people and then raising voices for women's education and calling ANYONE else is the killer is pure hypocrisy of the west. I agree with the Taliban is not good but I think between the west and the Taliban. Taliban is a lesser evil

    Many Muslims support Taliban. And any negative news on Taliban, they say western media propaganda. Wonder what they will say to this.
