Kabul: The Zan Library will provide free books for Afghan women and girls

Marking the 1st Anniversary of the Taliban Takeover, the fall of the Republic of Afghanistan in August 2021, we feature again Crystal Bayat an Afghan social activist and human rights advocate known for her protests and her fight for justice for the people of Afghanistan.

My name is Crystal Bayat, I am from Afghanistan and I am against the occupation of my country by the Taliban.

«August 15 is a black day for those who worked hard for a bright future of Afghanistan.

Banning girls from schools makes a nation backward.

One year of a nation being taken hostage.

One year of silence from the world.

Taliban are against humans and humanity!»

Women’s life now is like a caged bird, but I will fight. I will do my best until my last breath for the rights of women. 

Spontaneus movement of protesting women in Afghanistan in partnership with Crystal Bayat Foundation open a library for women and girls

New library based in Kabul established by Afghan activists created to support resistance against the Taliban and reestablish women’s rights to education and participation in public life.

The Spontaneous movement of protesting in Afghanistan partner with The Crystal Bayat Foundation today announced it recently opened a library in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. 

The library, called Zan Library, will provide free books for Afghan women and girls who are unable to pay or who are barred from employment.

On August 15, 2021, the Taliban took control of Afghanistan marking a dark day in the life of all Afghans, especially women and girls. Removing women from public life was the first order of business when the Taliban took control of Afghanistan one year ago. This hostile and tyrannical take over has included keeping female students out of classrooms and closing the doors of schools that educated women and girls.

The Zan LibraryZan being the Persian word for woman, is led by a prominent activist group called the “Spontaneous movement of protesting in Afghanistan’’, with a mission to ensure the presence and full participation of women in Afghan public life. 

Despite the Taliban regime trying to silence and remove women from society, these activists have chosen to resist through means of public education to ensure women and girls do not lose their God-given rights. 

The Zan Library mission incorporates the following tenets:

  • Empower and protect women through education
  • Support women’s participation in public life
  • Preserve women’s freedom.

According to Crystal Bayat Foundation founder Crystal Bayat,

We will work tirelessly to ensure the rights of all Afghan women and girls, which ultimately means the right to education and full participation in public life and policy making. We will not stop until our mission is met.

Address: Groundfloor, Lefthand Second Shop, Amiri Center next to Isan bakery, Pol-e-Sorkh, Kabul, Afghanistan.

Time: August 24th 2021, 2 pm Kabul Time.
