Some male TV newsreaders in Afghanistan are wearing face masks in protest of a new Taliban decree ordering female presenters cover their face. Since returning to power nine months ago, the Taliban has ordered all women to cover their faces in public and barred girls from attending school after the sixth grade. Najeeba Wazefadost, who fled Taliban rule in the early 2000s and is now the founder of the Asia Pacific Network of Refugees, tells The World women are becoming prisoners of their own gender.ABC News (Australia) YouTube Channel
