Rechte der Frauen unter den Taliban

By Duncan Mil

December 21, 2022 - Die Taliban haben vielfach ihre Versprechen, Rechte der Frauen seit der Machtübernahme 2021 zu schützen, gebrochen. Jetzt gibt es noch ein Verbot für Frauen, an Universitäten zu studieren. Es kommt zu heftiger Kritik im Ausland und Verzweiflung der Frauen in Afghanistan.

The Taliban had promised a softer rule after seizing power 16 months ago following the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the country. However, the hardline Islamists have continued to roll back women’s rights and freedoms in the country.

On Tuesday (December 20), the Minister for Higher Education, Neda Mohammad Nadeem, ordered a nationwide ban on university education for females.

In March, the Taliban promised to re-open some high schools for girls but cancelled the move just days later.

The crackdown also follows a wave of new restrictions on women in recent months. In November, the Ministry of Virtue
and Vice banned women from parks, gyms and public baths in the capital.

Just three months ago, the Taliban had allowed thousands of girls and women to sit university entrance exams in most provinces.
