About 300 women -- covered head-to-toe in accordance with strict new dress policies for education -- was seen sitting in rows at a Kabul university lecture theatre Saturday, pledging commitment to the Taliban's hardline policies on gender segregation.

Most wore black niqabs covering most of the face apart from the eyes.

The Taliban's education authority has said that women will be allowed to attend university as long as classes are segregated by sex or at least divided by a curtain.
