Special Series - The Girls of the Taliban

Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

Kunduz in northern Afghanistan is the country's fifth largest city and home to more than 300,000 people. It was once a Taliban stronghold where women were deprived of their basic rights and education for girls was prohibited. Today, particularly in towns and cities, women can go outside without their husbands or fathers, they can work, and girls can attend school and even university. In The Girls of the Taliban, our cameras gain unprecedented access to film inside this madrasa, to meet with the girls and their families and to question the men behind it.
