According to sources cited by Sputnik, the Taliban (who are subject to UN sanctions for terrorism) have forbidden female students from leaving the Afghan capital to attend universities in Kazakhstan and Qatar.
Both male and female students intended to depart Kabul, but only male students could fly out of Afghanistan to further their studies, according to the sources on Friday. In September 2021, a temporary Afghan administration headed by the Taliban took office following the withdrawal of US forces from the nation and the fall of the US-backed government.
The Taliban imposed gender-based segregation in schools and forbade Afghan women from working outside the home. Beyond the sixth grade, girls are not allowed to continue their education.
In addition, the Taliban forbids women from engaging in leisure activities or going to parks at the same time as men, and they are all required to cover their faces when in public.
following the Taliban’s invasion of Afghanistan in August 2021 and the imposition of regulations severely restricting fundamental rights, particularly those of women and girls. Taliban regulations forbid women from travelling unless they are escorted by a male relative and demand that women conceal their faces in public, including female TV newscasters.
In addition, the Taliban destroyed the system in place to address gender-based violence, added new obstacles to women’s access to healthcare, interfered with the work of women’s relief workers, and attacked women’s rights protestors.
The Taliban have infringed women’s and girls’ rights to education, employment, and freedom of travel since they seized power in August 2021, and they have utterly destroyed the system of safety and support for those fleeing domestic violence. Additionally, the group is responsible for the increased rates of child, early, and forced marriage in Afghanistan as well as the detention of women and girls for infractions of discriminatory laws.
Numerous rights organisations have urged the Taliban to adopt significant policy adjustments and steps to preserve the rights of women and girls.
Women are threatened by limits on their freedom of expression, education, and movement.
Locals claim that the Taliban has made it illegal for women to use smartphones, and that the Women’s Affairs Ministry frequently demands money in exchange for providing women with necessary safety. According to the report, approximately 18 million women in the nation are fighting for social, educational, and health rights, and about 80% of women who work in the media have lost their employment.
