The spokesperson of the Ministry of Virtue Communication and Abuse Prevention, Mohamed Sadiq Khakif Mahayel, told CNN that a new law prohibiting women from traveling long distances alone has come into effect. He said the law aims to prevent any harm or “harassment” of women.
Since taking power in August, the Taliban have been trying to show a moderate attitude on women’s rights when trying to restore frozen foreign aid.
Restrictive regulations such as stay-at-home orders have been touted as temporary, but they have been delayed. Most women are still unable to return to work, and they are prohibited from doing a range of jobs, including working in the government and entertainment television stations.
