In the window, the reporter of the castle is talking with some youths about girls’ harassment.

Khalida, a student of Jahan Malika high school, Ghazni city, Ghazni province says: “A boy was harassing me along the way to school. As my father is a nervous man, I could not share the issue with him and I suffer psychologic problems and now I go to school one day after.

Nagina Rabani, a student in Alai high school, Jalalabad city, Nangarhar province says: “I was always going to school with my small sister. A bicycle rider was harassing he pulled my scurf and this habit badly affected me and I wished that I would not go to school.”
