Since the Taliban took over the country(Afghanistan) it has been an absolute bloodshed and violation of human rights and beliefs. As it was said that the women will be given equal rights but their agendas seem to not even care about them and torment them back to the prehistoric age in every possible way. They call it Sharia law but it’s truly a brutality against women rights in the country.
Women Should Give Birth Rather Than Ruling
Quashing all possibilities of women being included in the government under the Taliban in Afghanistan, a spokesperson of the group said women should restrict themselves to giving birth. Outraged by the formation of a hard-line, all-male Taliban government, scores of Afghan women,risking their lives, have taken to the streets to protest against the same.
A Taliban spokesman on @TOLOnews: "A woman can't be a minister, it is like you put something on her neck that she can't carry. It is not necessary for a woman to be in the cabinet, they should give birth & women protesters can't represent all women in AFG."

Reacting to the protests and the outrage over the all-male government, the Taliban spokesperson Sayed Zekrullah Hashimi, in an interview to Tolo News, said, “A woman can’t be a minister, it is like you put something on her neck that she can’t carry”.
Equal Rights For Women
Taliban vowed to honour women’s rights, several instances of brutality against women for protesting against being denied the freedom to work and doing things that the group considers are out of their boundary. When they last ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001, women could not work, girls were not allowed to attend school and women had to cover their face and be accompanied by a male relative if they wanted to venture out of their homes.
According to reports, Afghan women, who were protesting against the all-male Afghanistan’s new interim government in Kabul, were driven away by the Taliban on Wednesday. The Taliban used whips and sticks against the women protesters in the crackdown on dissent.
Each day passing the Taliban is imposing restrictions on women and confiscating all their rights in the society. It’s the duty of the United Nations to look into the matter as for now it might be a private issue of a country however this is something which is going to take over the world in near future.
