Militants of the radical Islamist Taliban movement have banned women from leaving their homes to work until "the system to ensure their safety is established." It is reported by DW.

According to Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, this is a temporary order. According to him, the Taliban security forces have not yet "been trained how to deal with women, how to talk to them."

“Until there is complete safety, we ask women to stay at home,” he said.

It is noted that representatives of the Taliban, almost immediately after the establishment of full control over the territory of Afghanistan, said that they would allow women to lead an active lifestyle, but in compliance with Sharia law. For example, women are no longer allowed to go out on the street without a male relative and without clothing covering the entire body. In addition, women are excluded from certain types of work, including work in the media.

On August 15, militants of the radical Taliban movement took control over the entire territory of Afghanistan. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani resigned and left the country to prevent bloodshed in the capital. On August 19, the radical Islamist Taliban movement officially announced the creation of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
