Taliban Government Ban Male Doctors From Treating Women

The Taliban’s rulings targeting the education and employment rights of women and young girls have sparked widespread international outrage, but have had no effect on reversing the extremist rulings. 

There are more troubles for women in Afghanistan’s Balkh province as the Taliban Government made a new policy banning the women from visiting a male doctor for their treatment. 

In a report by news outlet WION, the Directorate of Public Affairs and Hearing of Taliban Complaints announced a fresh diktat, saying women are not allowed to visit male doctors anymore and “no education to women as well, so no female doctors either.”

The Taliban’s rulings targeting the education and employment rights of women and young girls have sparked widespread international outrage, but have had no effect on reversing the extremist rulings. 

The United Nations Security Council expressed “deep concern” last week about the country’s erosion of women’s rights. It urged the Taliban to “reopen schools as soon as possible and swiftly reverse these policies and practices that represent a growing erosion of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.”

The Group of Seven (G-7) countries have also urged the Taliban to “immediately reverse” its ban on women aid workers.
