Hollywood actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie shared a moving letter she received from a young Afghan woman, highlighting the ongoing extremities of terrorism in Afghanistan.
Angelina Jolie took to Instagram and shared pictures of the personal letter she received from the young Afghan woman, parts of which were blurred out to safeguard the woman’s identity.
“A young woman in #Afghanistan sent me this letter,” Angelina Jolie began the caption of her post. “I’m protecting her identity, but she hasn’t been able to go back to school since the Taliban seized power.”
Further noting that women in Afghanistan are “being arrested simply for taking part in peaceful protests,” Angelina said the young girl wrote – “I might never be able to go outside again or even be able to speak as I am a girl.”
In the shared post, the Maleficent actor also highlighted women’s rights activists who are “missing” in Afghanistan, including Alia Azizi, Parwana Ibrahimkhel, Mursal Ayar, and Zahra Mohammadi, plus Tamana Zaryab Paryani and her three sisters.
