As many as 50 women rights activists have staged a demonstration in Kabul to demand a seat in the new Taliban cabinet.
The women say that although the Taliban were unable to form a cabinet in more than 20 days, but they are set to form a cabinet today without the presence of any women.
These women say that we women have the right to work and study alongside men, and we call on the Taliban to give women equal rights to work with men and we want to take part in the cabinet of the new Taliban government.
But a number of these women were beaten and wounded by Taliban militants during their protest .
Pictures obtained by Peshgoo News Agency show that Ms. Shamila Tavana is a civil activist and women’s rights activist who was beaten and wounded by Taliban soldiers with a gun..
