Global News published this video item, entitled “Taliban touts Afghan women’s education while limiting learning” – below is their description.

Since seizing control of Afghanistan last month, as the U.S. withdrew from the country following a nearly 20-year war, the Taliban has tried to convince the world it will respect women’s rights.

The militant group now says it will allow women to attend university, albeit in separate classrooms from their male counterparts.

In Kabul, the Taliban paraded a group of women voicing their support for the move. But as Mike Drolet reports, many women are living in fear, as violence toward them persists.
