Afghanistan, controlled by the Taliban, is back to the era of ‘oppression of women’s rights’ 20 years ago.

The Guardian, a British daily, reported on the 6th that the tough restrictions on women’s lives in Afghanistan that the Taliban had in the past (1996-2001) are showing signs of returning. The Taliban have promised to guarantee women’s human rights within the framework of Sharia (Islamic law), but looking at the regulations related to women being announced one after another, nothing has changed from the past.

According to the AFP news agency, the Taliban education authority said on the 4th that women attending private universities in Afghanistan must wear an abaya, a long black robe that covers the entire body except the face, and a niqab (pictured) that covers the entire face except the eyes. came up with Color is limited to black.

Classes are also conducted by gender, and if the situation is not favorable, a partition must be installed to separate male and female students. Girls should only be in the waiting room before class, and after class they should stay in the classroom until the boys leave school. In addition, female students were required to take classes only from female teachers, and if it was difficult to secure female teachers, they were replaced with elderly males. “I was planning to continue my studies in Kabul and start a small business after college,” a woman, who requested anonymity, told The Guardian.

Freedom of movement is also disappearing. The Taliban require women who want to enter public places to be accompanied by a male guardian (the Mahram). A woman whose military husband died during the operation said, “I have no brother or an adult son nearby to take me to the entrance of the clinic, so I have to stay at home.” Having been responsible for the livelihood of his three children, he is suffering from economic difficulties due to cut off work.

Many women have lost their jobs or have been forced to leave for safety reasons. In Kandahar, Taliban gang members opened fire on a woman’s banker’s job.

Retaliatory killings targeting women have also been reported. The BBC reported, citing eyewitnesses, that the Taliban brutally killed a policewoman, eight months pregnant, in front of her family in Pirozhko, the state capital of Gorju. The Taliban denied any ties to them and said they were investigating.

The Taliban fired tear gas and fired warning shots after women took to the streets in Kabul on the 4th to defend their human rights. It is also known that some women have been assaulted.

Despite the Taliban’s suppression of violence, the voices of women demanding human rights guarantees are not expected to fade easily. Some women’s protests are motivating others to take to the streets, The Guardian said. Fatima, an Afghan woman, asked, “Should our women who have experienced wars and conflicts be completely removed from politics?
