Women targeted in Taliban takeover of Afghan city

Hiding in her basement, a Kunduz radio presenter was paralysed with fear when the Taliban came looking for her as they conducted house-tohouse searches for working women after storming the northern Afghan city. Long condemned as misogynistic zealots, the Taliban have sought to project a softened stance on female rights, but the insurgents` three-day occupation of Kunduz offers an ominous blueprint of what could happen should they ever return to power. Harrowing testimonies have emerged of death squads methodically targeting a host of female rights workers andjournalistsjusthours after the city fell on Sept 28. When they knocked on the radio host`s door, her uncle answered, she told AFP, requesting anonymity due to safety concerns. `We know a woman in your house works in an office,` she said they told him. `When my uncle denied it, he was taken outside and shot dead. His body lay in the streets for days no one dared to go out and get it.` Such testimonies harl Rights groups say female …

We must protect young girls from sexism in primary school

A new study suggests that gender-based assumptions about girls can have a long-lasting effect on children. Sadly, we see them all the time – and not just in our classrooms

A parent had shared a snapshot of her six-year-old child’s homework – a worksheet asking pupils to research a scientist or inventor. So far, so normal. But the question, in jaunty Comic Sans, read: “Who was he? Who was the person you have chosen to look at? How old were they when they began inventing? Did they have a wife and family?”

The frustration of the parent, who appealed to other Twitter users for suggestions of female inventors, would be dismissed by many as an overreaction to a carelessly worded question. But she is far from alone. Parents share similar homework woes with the Everyday Sexism website and Twitter account with startling regularity.

One referenced their son’s physics homework, which used examples of men pushing vans, lifting weights, climbing trees and shooting arrows. The sole female example …
