UN Human Rights Council: Taliban trying to remove women and girls from public life

A delegation attending an urgent debate at the UN Human Rights Council on the status of women and girls in Afghanistan puts the greatest pressure on Tullivan internationally. It is urging society.

At the beginning of Friday's debate, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet accused the Taliban of systematic crackdowns and the exclusion of women and girls from public life in Afghanistan.

She told the Rights Council that domestic violence and harassment were widespread under the Taliban, as were attacks on female human rights defenders, journalists and lawyers. She said women could no longer find employment and that more than a million girls' secondary school was over.

She said women were deeply depressed due to increased restrictions on movement and clothing.

"Some of these concerns existed before the Taliban takeover in August 2021, but the reforms at that time were in the right direction. There were improvements and hopes." Bachelet said. "But since the Taliban came to power, women and girls have experienced the most important and rapid rollbacks in decades to fully enjoy their rights."

Richard Bennett, a special reporter on the human rights situation in Afghanistan, said the decline in women's rights was central to the Taliban's ideology. Under Taliban rule in the 1990s, he stated that there was a significant recession in the rights of women and girls.

'Misogyny and oppression'

"Therefore, despite the official guarantee from Tullivan, it is natural to respect the rights of women and girls. That being said, they are gradually resurrecting the discrimination against women and girls characteristic of their predecessors, which is unparalleled worldwide in their disgrace and oppression. "

In an ardent speech to the council, Fawzia Koofi, the first female vice president of the Afghan parliament, described the dire situation of Afghan women. She said women no longer participate in parliament, civil life and public life. She said that every day one or two women commit suicide because there is no hope left.

"Afghanistan is the only place in the world where women are basically literally invisible and the second class of citizens," she said. "In the 21st century, it's a pain. It's a pain for me, and for other sisters and fellow citizens, to defend our fundamental rights: the visible right, the right that is indelible to public life.

The United Nations does not recognize Tullivan as a legitimate ruler of Afghanistan, and the Group does not have the right to speak in any UN forum. The former administration's ambassador to Afghanistan spoke and essentially confirmed what the other participants had to say.

During the debate, 3,000 Islamic clergy have met at the first Loya Jirga or the Grand Council since the Taliban hijacked Afghanistan. Only men are called in to attend the rally and discuss national unity and the problems facing the country. Taliban officials say the male representative represents the female.
