Internet cafes for women

Kabul - An internet cafe for women have opened here recently.

Cafe Sahar Gul was named to commemorate a 15-year-old bride who was tortured and imprisoned by her husband.

The cafe was opened by a group known as the Young Women for Change.


According to the group, women are not using a male-dominated internet cafe here.

That happens because women face harassment from men, the group said.


"In an effort to provide Internet access to women, we often conduct training sessions for girls to teach them about how to use and the importance of social media as a means of raising awareness on their rights," said the cafe manager, Tooba Ahmadyar. - AFP
