Trudeau used Afghan girls robotics team for photo op, now they are begging for his help

An all-girls robotics team in Afghanistan is begging the Trudeau Liberals for help, as the Taliban consummate control over the nation. According to The Independent, the 20-member team, known as the “Afghan Dreamers,” includes girls aged 12 and 18. They are “extremely terrified” and are trying to connect with the prime minister, who held a photo op with them in 2018. The team has thrived since the US held a presence in their country. They competed in multiple competitions worldwide and made headlines for their life-saving mission to build a ventilator from used car parts. All of their accomplishments and freedoms are now at risk as the Taliban is reportedly going door-to-door and taking young girls as sex slaves. Several experts noted that under the Taliban, the well-being of women and minorities is a big concern. Before the US mandate in Afghanistan two decades ago, the Taliban curtailed freedoms for women. For example, they could not enter public places without a male from their household. A Taliban spokesperson said the terrorist group is “committed to the rights of women within the framework of Sharia.”
