Driving school for women opened in Jawzjan

The Women’s Council of the National Islamic Movement of Afghanistan has established the first-ever driving school for women in Jawzjan province.

Roya Zelal, head of the Women’s Council, said many women wanted to drive and requested to launch a driving training.

The driving school saw enrollment of 64 women in just a few weeks.

The first driving school in Afghanistan was launched in 2003 in capital Kabul by a German-based NGO offering support to traumatized women and girls in war and crisis zones.

Breaking away from tradition, the Afghan women drivers took to the streets for the first time after a decade.

For many Afghan women, getting driving license is a major move forward as is seen as symbolic of the development of women’s rights.
