Exercise is good for human health. For sports, men and women are not the same, and they are used in parallel for all human beings. Regardless of age, gender, race, class, etc.
But this issue and addressing it in the current society of Afghanistan has a different color and appearance! Because it is almost limited to a certain class. As most external activities and tasks belong to this stratum of society.
Restrictions and gender discrimination against women have led many athletic girls, who have turned to the sport with great love and perseverance, to stop exercising and stay at home.
This issue is rooted in the social beliefs and attitudes of the people of the society towards this field. Most families believe that if their daughters become athletes, they will be played with their dignity and their future may be jeopardized.
