To no one’s surprise, a designated Taliban spokesperson once again made comments against the participation of women in frontline jobs. Taliban spokesperson Sayed Zekrullah Hashimi, on Thursday, said that women can’t be ministers and “they should give birth”. “A woman can’t be a minister, it is like you put something on her neck that she can’t carry. It is not necessary for women to be in the cabinet – they should give birth. Women protesters can’t represent all women in Afghanistan,” Hashimi told TOLO news. The interviewer countered: “Women are half of the society.” Hashimi replied: “But we do not consider them half. What kind of half?”

Hashimi claimed that word “half” was “misdefined here”.
“The half means here that you keep them in the cabinet and nothing more. And if you violate her rights, not an issue. Over the last 20 years, whatever was said by this media, the US, and its puppet government in Afghanistan, was it anything but prostitution in offices?”
The Taliban, known for its oppressive regime against the women, has tried to revamp its image ever since it came to power on August 15. The women have been allowed to work and attend schools. However, the new Taliban government didn’t include a single woman, leading to questions.
