Roya Heydari, Afghan filmmaker and photographer, flee her motherland and posted a heart breaking post on her social media. Her post captured desperation and dilemma that thousands of women in the Taliban-controlled country are facing after the August 15 takeover.

Sharing a photo from the Kabul airport, she wrote, “I left my whole life, my home in order to continue to have a voice.” She said she will again have to start her life from zero.

The Taliban on August 15 captured Kabul and other provinces of Afghanistan weeks before US troops withdrew from the country.

Ever since the capture, people are trying to flee the country in desperation. The Taliban, however, have said that they will allow women to work.

Between 1996 and 2001, when the Taliban was in power, they had banned women from the workplace, stopped them from leaving the home unaccompanied by a male relative and forced them to wear an all-covering burqa in public.

On Thursday, a Taliban spokesperson said that women should not work for their own safety, contradicting the group’s efforts to convince other countries that they would be more tolerant towards women.
