Taliban Summon Beauty Salon Owners’ Family Members in Afghanistan’s Ghazni

The Director of Promotion of Virtue and Prohibition of the Taliban in Ghazni Province reportedly summoned the family members of several owners of women’swomen’s beauty salons on Thursday and warned them to end their activities by the end of the month.

The Department’s officials have threatened to prosecute and punish the husbands of the owners of these beauty parlours or other family members in case of violation.

According to the decree issued by the Taliban’sTaliban’s Ministry of Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, women’swomen’s beauty parlours in Afghanistan will no longer be allowed to operate after July 23, 2023.

According to a report, more than 60,000 women will lose their jobs due to the closure of women’swomen’s beauty salons across the country.

According to the Khaama Press report, there are over 12,000 women’swomen’s beauty salons throughout the country, with an average of five women employed by each. There are 3,100 women-only beauty salons in Kabul. 

It is also important to note that most women support their families solely through employment.

Since August 2021, the de facto authorities issued some suppressive policies and practices which restricted women’s rights, including banning women from attending schools and universities and working with aid agencies.

Human rights activists and the international community have massively criticized the recent decree by the Taliban.
