EU condemns Taliban restricting women

Brussels 14.11.2022 “The EU condemns the additional restrictions by the Taliban on women’s freedom of movement, including the newly announced rules barring women from entering public parks and gyms.

“These restrictions come in addition to the already severe violations by the Taliban of the rights of Afghan women and girls – in contradiction to Taliban’s own initial promises. Afghan women and girls remain deprived of secondary education, face restrictions in their travel and movement, and are excluded from most aspects of public and economic life.

“The EU calls on the de facto authorities to honour Afghanistan’s obligations under international law, in particular human rights, refugee and humanitarian law, and to ensure respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms of all the Afghan population”.
