Treatment of Women Under Taliban in Afghanistan


The Taliban is a militant group that governs Afghanistan. The group has a reputation for its strict interpretation of Islam and its treatment of women, which has been widely criticized as oppressive and discriminatory.

The Taliban’s rule in Afghanistan, women are denied many basic rights and freedoms. They are not allowed to work outside the home, attend school, or even leave their homes without the permission of a male relative. Women are also required to wear the burqa, a garment that covers the entire body, when in public.

In addition to these restrictions, women are also subjected to harsh punishments for perceived violations of the Taliban’s strict codes of conduct. This could include flogging or execution for crimes such as adultery or the charge of being a spy.

Women are required to cover themselves completely when in public, including wearing a burqa, a garment that covers the entire body and face, with only a mesh window to see through. Women are also banned from working outside the home, attending school, or participating in sports. They are also prohibited from leaving their homes without a male relative and are not allowed to receive medical treatment from male doctors.

Violations of these rules are often punished with fines, imprisonment, or corporal punishment. The Taliban enforces a strict segregation of the sexes and does not allow women to interact with men who are not their relatives.

The treatment of women by the Taliban has been widely condemned by the international community and human rights organizations.
