Women hold up signs in protest against Taliban in Kabul

Four Afghani women held up signs asking for their rights to live in a fair and just society on the streets of Kabul, Afghanistan, after the Taliban have retaken control of the city.

In the above video, you can see the four women wearing black abayas and black and green hijabs peacefully hold up their signs while people look on all around them.

It is the first such protest by a group of women since the militant group retook control of Kabul on Sunday (15 August), after US President Joe Biden pulled troops from the country.
