Women are allowed to choose whether or not they want to wear pants or dresses(Kwai).
The women of Afghanistan are modernly known for the restrictions and rules that they live by in today’s day and age. However, this wasn’t always how they use to live. Ages before the Taliban and the Soviet Occupation, Afghan women lived normal and free lives compared to today.
