Representatives of the Taliban invited women to participate in the country’s management and be present in the future government. It was reported on August 17 by the channel Al Hadath, concerning one of the representatives of the Taliban.
According to the channel’s interlocutor, the members of the organization do not want women to be victims.
After the capture of Kabul by the Taliban, the media published information that store windows and beauty salons in the city were plastered with images of women. Female residents were afraid that with the arrival of the Taliban they would be unable to work and lead a normal life.
Meanwhile, Tolo News, an Afghan television channel, continued to broadcast with female anchors. Saad Mohseni, director of Moby Media Group, which includes the channel, said the Taliban did not object.
On Aug. 16, the UN Security Council called for a new inclusive government in Afghanistan. This implies that women should be included in the government.
The day before, the Taliban had promised to respect women’s rights and allow them to work.
