Women and girls in Afghanistan face an onslaught of decrees from the Taliban designed to erase women from public life. The latest of these requires women to cover themselves from head to toe. The UN Security Council has held an emergency session to discuss the Taliban’s restrictive policies on women in Afghanistan.

Measures designed to erase women from public life. The latest of these diktats requires women to cover themselves from head to toe.
