What is certain now, and that must be clear to the eyes of the world, is that the Afghan regime does not accept , in women, adults or adolescents who will be pursuing an education, a career other than that of a mother. It does not recognize them as a free existence and independently. In short, one wonders: who knows if he recognizes them at least as people.
