What are some rare historical photos you wouldn't believe existed? by Shrey Mahajan
Answer by Shrey Mahajan:
This is picture of Afghanistan from 1970s.
Before being invaded by the Taliban, women enjoyed a great life in Afghanistan. They received their voting rights in 1920s and equality by the Constitution by 1960s.
In 1977 women the Afghanistan legislative bodies comprised of 15% women.
This is how a public transportation stop looked like in Afghanistan then.
And this is how a college was seen.
Women had an important role to play in the mental development of the nation.
Then came the Taliban. Now the women of Afghanistan are deprived of their rights. They are forced to live life under fear and restrictions.
It was a beautiful place, it has become a prison now.
I hope I helped.

Edit: I have checked the second picture again. It is from Afghanistan and NOT from Syria.
