A top aid organization has gone to Afghanistan this week to plead with the Taliban to end their massive roll back of women’s rights and freedoms.
The latest ban prevents NGOs from employing female staff. Hiring only men – who are not allowed to directly care for women – means aid organizations can’t help vulnerable groups like widows or single mothers. Other bans targeting education, work and sport are erasing women from public life. NGOs say the conditions are making their work all but impossible.
