Taliban Gives Reasons Why Afghan Women Must Stay Home And Avoid Work

Women and girls in Afghanistan are not safe in the presence of Taliban soldiers, according to the militant group.

As a result, Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid advised women not to go to work for their own safety.

This looks to be a significant reversal in the group's messaging, as they previously stated that after assuming power in Kabul, they would be more open to women's rights and liberties.

The order to stay at home would be temporary, according to Mujahid, and would give the group time to figure out how to make sure women aren't "treated in a disrespectful way" or "God forbid, wounded."

Because the Taliban's forces "always changing and are not trained," he admitted that the action was required.

We welcome people into the buildings, but we want to make sure they are not concerned,” he said.

“As a result, we've asked them to take time off work until the situation returns to normal and women's protocols are in place, after which they'll be able to return to their positions once it's announced.”

Between 1996 to 2001, when the militant organization was in charge, it barred women from working, forbade them from leaving the house unless accompanied by men, and compelled them to cover their entire bodies.
