Afghan women on the front line: In their homes

Afghan women on the front line: In their homes

Every day since August 2021, millions of women and girls in Afghanistan have woken up to their worst nightmare: a society that outlaws their identity. 

But even as the Taliban push the erasure of women from public life, Afghan women continue to fight, by finding new ways to organise indoors, and raising awareness of their day-to-day life online and through social media. 

‘Afghan women on the frontline’ is a two-part documentary series about these courageous women, produced by Zan Times with support from the International Women’s Foundation, and published in partnership with Impact Newsletter and NADJA. 

Here is part two – the story of the women hosting secret schools and using art, theatre and dance to resist oppression in Afghanistan, despite being imprisoned in their homes.
