Afghanistan. “Nuovi” talebani, stesse vecchie politiche misogine (fonte: ORF)

SITARA SRINIVAS

In its gradual efforts to restrict female participation in Afghan society and public life, the Taliban in late December banned female employees from working at international organisations, stating that “all female employees who are working in their respective departments should stop their work until further notice”. This, the Taliban claimed was because female aid workers had broken dress codes by not wearing the hijab. This announcement comes on the heels of the recent ban on Afghan women from attending university –having suspended secondary education for girls earlier on.
