Taliban have allowed women to continue studying but a new law has dictated that wearing a niqab will be compulsory to attend university. The Taliban have ordered that the women attending private Afghan universities must wear an abaya robe and niqab covering most of the face and classes must be segregated by sex -- or at least divided by a curtain. In a lengthy document issued by the Taliban's education authority, they also ordered that female students should only be taught by other women, but if that was not possible then "old men" of good character could fill in.
