'Grotesque And Wrong': Foreign Diplomats Called Out For Meeting Taliban Without Women

Since the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan, the international community has pledged to hold the militant Islamist group accountable for its treatment of women.

But many of the delegations sent by foreign governments and organizations to meet with the Taliban have excluded women. Even talks with the militants over women’s rights have been male-only.

The move has provoked a backlash from Afghan women and international rights activists who accuse foreign diplomats and agencies of hypocrisy.

The Taliban has reimposed many of the repressive laws against women that were a hallmark of its brutal regime in the 1990s, including severely curtailing girls’ education and banning many women from working.


Please help raise awareness to put pressure on the diplomats and government officials visiting Afghanistan.
