Banners in Kabul read, “We are all one. We broke injustice.”

The new Taliban mayor in the Afghan capital, Kabul, has asked female municipal employees to stay home if a man cannot take their jobs.

Hamdullah Nomani said the Taliban “need to stop women from working for a while.”

These are the latest restrictions imposed by the new government of the militant group on women in the country.

During their previous regime in the 1990s, women were excluded from education and employment.
