Introduction

By: Ruby Hodges Y10-2 Argumentative Essay: When it come to the roles that women play in society, the Taliban is completely wrong. Taliban first came to power in 1996 during Afghanistan's civil war, as a large group of people, having the same beliefs towards society and from the same religion. The Sunni Muslim's, (which is the majority of Afghanistan's population,) came to be in charge only two years after they united together in 1994.
