As the Taliban retake Afghanistan for the first time in 20 years following a blitz-style seizure of the country, which ended in the fall of Kabul on Sunday, vandalized posters of women underscore a deep anxiety many female Afghans have for their future.
Images of women outside a Kabul beauty salon were painted over after the Taliban assumed control over the country, and other photographs show posters defaced. Photojournalist Wakil Kohsar captured the scene on Wednesday for Agence France-Presse.
During the Taliban's 1996-2001 rule, women were not allowed to work or attend school. They were also barred from leaving their homes without the presence of a man and were forced to cover their faces or risk punishment.
