Summary
Afghanistan's de facto authorities' failure to adhere to commitments to reopen schools for girls above the sixth grade is "deeply damaging" for the country, according to UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet. The denial of education not only violates the equal rights of women and girls to education, it also jeopardizes the country's future in view of the tremendous contributions by Afghan women and girls.
