Throw Back your City Tuesday

Pics Reposted from 52 Powerful Women: Distractify

I showed these pictures to the staff today in the office and they couldn’t believe it.

3412-934x

Women at a public library. [1960]

473-934x 

Women studying medicine. [1962]

These pictures looked like they were taken from a library back in the day in the US, UK or Canada, but I was shocked to find out they were originally from Afghanistan in the 1960’s. Women’s rights have changed dramatically over the past several decades in Afghanistan and unfortunately not for the better.
