Women wears colorful Afghan clothes and post photos on social media to fight against Taliban hijab mandate

What a person wears - or not - is entirely up to them. And anything that smells even slightly unreasonable is considered patriarchal. In many cultures, people - men and women - are expected to veil and dress modestly. But the events in Afghanistan have sparked a global debate about the situation of women there and whether or not they are deprived of their choice.

Afghans around the world have spoken out against them since the Taliban took control of the country. Women in particular are protesting in schools against the Taliban's new hijab mandate. They posted photos of themselves on social media in colorful traditional clothing without a hijab to tell the world more about the glorious Afghan culture. The Taliban have enforced gender segregation in the classroom. The group said that students, teachers and staff who continue to receive and provide education must wear the hijab in accordance with the group's interpretation of Sharia law.

In fact, a photo recently shared on social media has been described by many as heartbreaking. It shows a group of female students dressed in head-to-toe black and waving Taliban flags in solidarity in the lecture hall of a state university in Kabul.
This has led to discussions with many netizens who say it is an attempt to destroy the country's culture through the oppression of women. In response to this photo, many Afghan women posted photos of them wearing traditional Afghan clothing in a light color that contrasted sharply with the mandate of the black hijab. It was Bahar Jalali, a former faculty member at the American University of Afghanistan, who started the trend on Twitter by first tweeting a photo of a woman in a black dress and veil.

Wrote: “No woman has ever dressed like this in the history of Afghanistan. This is utterly foreign and alien to Afghan culture. I posted my pic in the traditional Afghan dress to inform, educate, and dispel the misinformation that is being propagated by the Taliban.”

Inspired, followed by other Afghan women in sharing photos of themselves and showing the world what true Afghan culture is all about. The situation of women there has been worrying worldwide since the Taliban's swift takeover last month. The group is known for their draconian terms and laws that encourage beating, beating, threatening and murdering women who they say deviate from "Islamic laws".
