The Taliban banned women working for the United Nations from working in humanitarian organizations

The United Nations Security Council has unanimously condemned the Taliban, who control Afghanistan, for preventing Afghan women from working at the United Nations.

A Security Council resolution drafted by the United Arab Emirates and Japan on Thursday called the ban “unprecedented in the history of the United Nations” and emphasized the “vital role of women in Afghan society”. .”

The Taliban’s latest decision follows its decision to ban women from humanitarian organizations in December last year.

Since the Taliban seized power and toppled the Western-backed government in 2021, women have been subjected to a number of measures, including barring them from attending universities, and closing girls’ secondary schools.
