They opened the first women's gym in Kandahar (VIDEO)

They opened the first women's gym in Kandahar.

A gym for women has been opened in Kandahar province in Afghanistan. The new gym arouses mixed feelings in the locals.

In Afghanistan, the Taliban still have a huge influence. And his followers are extremely conservative towards women. Ladies are required to wear burqas in public. They also do it in the gym.

During the Taliban's rule between 1996 and 2001, the regime banned women from getting an education or leaving the house without a male relative. This has changed to date, but many housewives do not want or dare to take advantage of the newly acquired freedom.

However, not all men in Kandahar put a negative sign on the initiative.
