Female education in Afghanistan

By: Lim Ji Wei


Why were women denied education?

  • Taliban rule

  • Ban women from receiving education

  • Burned down women schools and universities

  • Women involved in teaching were caught by the Taliban and persecuted, jailed, and tortured

  • Affected 106,256 girls, and 8,000 female university undergraduates. 7,793 female teachers were dismissed, a move that crippled the provision of education and caused 63 schools to close due to a sudden lack of educators


What do the females do?

  • Some women ran clandestine schools within their homes for local children, or for other women under the guise of sewing classes.

  • The learners, parents and educators were aware of the consequences should the Taliban discover their activities

  • Gave a sense of self-determination and hope for those trapped under the strict Taliban rule


Improvement in female education

  • When Taliban was ousted in 2001

  • Women are theoretically free to attend school

  • But:

  • lack of resources and facilities

  • regular militant attacks on schools led to regular closure of schools

  • Takes tremendous bravery and tenacity for girls to go to school

  • In 2008 alone, there were 283 violent attacks on schools, resulting in 92 dead and 169 injured


Result

  • As a result of Taliban’s rule:

  • Only 26 per cent of Afghanistan’s population is literate, and among women the rate is only 12 per cent

  • Among school age children, 38 per cent (4.2 million in real numbers) do not have access to schools, most of which are girls

  • 50 per cent of schools do not have buildings and other necessities, and a dearth of textbooks, teaching materials and equipped laboratories

  • Large number of school closures or relocations directly affects the quality of education


Local organization strives to improve Afghan education system
