Women activists call for more rights in Afghanistan

6/12/2021 7:12
        Women’s rights activists in the Afghan capital of Kabul insisted Sunday they would continue fighting for their right to education, employment and participation in Afghan political and social life, and said a recent Taliban decree banning forced marriage was not enough to address the issue of women’s rights.
        
        The decree, issued Friday, comes as poverty surges in Afghanistan following the Taliban takeover of the country in mid-August amid the withdrawal of U.S. and NATO troops.
        
        Foreign governments have halted funds to the aid-dependent country since then.
        
        Social rights activist Farida Akbari said the new Taliban government should permit women access to education and employment.
        
        Currently education at the secondary school level and above has been banned, while most women have been banned from working.
        
        Akbari said Friday’s decree on forced marriage would not have any particular benefit to women living in cities, where such practices are rarer.
