Afghanistan: Right to ride revolution stops as women face targeted violence by Taliban


The last 10 days have been a matter of life and death for the groundbreaking women cyclists who defied gender taboos in Afghanistan, and who are now in danger of targeted violence by the Taliban. There is an international effort underway to bring the riders to safety but time is running out.

There are thousands desperate to flee the country before the US troops withdrawal deadline of August 31. The Taliban has taken control of all major airports with the exception of the airport in Kabul, but traveling to this hub can be dangerous, even for those who have been placed on evacuation lists and have been cleared to leave.
