South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Women fear the worst for their freedoms as Taliban return to power in Afghanistan” – below is their description.
The chaos and uncertainty created by the Taliban taking control in Afghanistan has left women in the country fearing for their lives and freedom. Many Afghans recall the brutal rule of the militants between 1996 and 2001. The Taliban entered the capital Kabul on August 15, 2021, after rapidly taking over much of the country. Now, many in the country worry that after two decades the militants are returning with a harsh form of Islamist rule, which banned women from work or classrooms, and enforced punishments ranging from hand-choppings to stonings.
