Resisting the Taliban with a needle and thread
May 18, 2022

A damning new report released today from a US watchdog blames both the Trump and Biden administration for the swift collapse of the Afghan military in August last year. Afghans are now living with the consequences, with women and girls bearing the biggest burdens. After 20 years of progress, many of their rights are slipping away, with secondary girl students still barred from public school. Despite their fears, though, girls are continuing the fight right under the Taliban’s nose. Today Christiane visited one former fashion studio, where the tools of resistance are needle and thread. 

Also in today's show: Afghan women’s rights activist Fatima Gailani, Pakistani Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Bloomberg Managing Editor of Crypto Stacy-Marie Ishmael.
