‘Men must stand up for women’: Afghan professor

Professor Ismail Mashal, who runs a private university in Kabul, says he has had enough of the restrictions women face in Afghanistan. “I call on fathers to take the hands of their daughters and walk them to school, even if the gates are shut. This is not me being emotional, this is pain. Men must stand up and defend the rights of Afghan women and girls,” he added.
