CNN’s Clarissa Wards Wears Headscarf To Reports News on TV
Ward utilized her “New Day” report to show exactly how significantly things have changed in the city as of now.
“This is a sight I honestly thought I would never see,” Ward said. “Scores of Taliban fighters, and just behind us, the U.S. Embassy compound.”
When asked by “New Day” anchors Jon Berman and Brianna Keilar to go into more profundity about exactly how differently things have changed currently, Ward pointed out that that she essentially saw members of Taliban in the city. The individuals who were simply normal residents were for the most part men.
“I have seen a few women, but I will say, I have seen far fewer women than I would ordinarily see walking down the streets of Kabul,” Ward said. “And the women that you do see walking down the streets of Kabul tend to be dressed more conservatively than they were when they were walking down the streets of Kabul yesterday. I’ve seen more burkas today than I had seen in awhile. Obviously, I am dressed in a very different way to how I would normally dress to walk down the streets of Kabul.”
The female American Journalist even noted during her detailing that her presence began to cause pressure among Taliban individuals she addressed. At a certain point, she was explicitly approached to stand to the side since she is a lady.
“It’s impossible to say with regards to what the circumstance on ground will look like in two hours, not to mention two days, two months,” Ward said.
