The present administration of the country, after they seized power from the former government, they instituted a ban on the education of women, In addition to this, they have also restricted women from working in government offices and a majority of the workforce. They have also imposed largely draconian rules restricting women’s movement in the country.

Meanwhile, they have also imposed strict restrictions on women and girls’ freedom of movement, expression, association and assembly in Afghan society. The restrictions, especially on girls’ education, have received widespread criticism from the world community. The UN, in this regard, has criticised the administration of the Taliban for receding women’s access to basic human rights like education and practising the career of the people
