It is outrageous to think that these women were deprived of their freedom and that they could not attend to school because of all the policies that The Taliban implemented. They were deprived of every right they had, and not only with that, but they were also forced to wear burqas. And because of their economic interests, the US remained silenced and by the side of the Taliban government.
