The Taliban have said that women should not be included in the cabinet that they should have children, they cannot become ministers. Women, full of men, have taken to the streets to protest the new Taliban government.
As soon as the Taliban came to power, the Taliban have expressed their intention for women. The fear that the women of Afghanistan were afraid of the arrival of the Taliban is now coming to the fore.
First the Taliban did not make a single woman a minister in their government, then stopped girls from playing supports and now it has made very bad remarks about women. The Taliban have said that women cannot become ministers, they should have children.
Rejecting all possibilities of women being included in the Taliban government in Afghanistan, a spokesman said women should limit themselves to having children.
Angry over not including women in the government, Afghan women have taken to the streets against it. Responding to this demonstration, the Taliban said that a woman cannot be a minister, be it as if you put something on her neck, she cannot take it.
A Taliban spokesman on @TOLOnews: “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 a woman to be in the cabinet, they should give birth & women protesters can’t represent all women in AFG.”

Spokesperson Saeed Zakarullah Hashimi said it was not necessary for a woman to be in the cabinet, women should give birth. On the matter of protest, Hashimi said – “Some women protesters may not represent all women in Afghanistan”.
Women have feared civil rights since the return of Taliban rule in Afghanistan in August. The women fear that the Taliban might take away the rights that they had been given by the Afghan government of the last 20 years.
When the Taliban ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001, women had very few rights. They could not work outside, girls were not allowed to go to school and women had to cover their faces and had to have a male relative with them if they wanted to leave their homes. Failure to do so was punishable by death under Sharia law.
According to reports, Afghan women opposing the new interim government in Kabul have been driven out by the Taliban. CNN reported that the Taliban used whips and sticks against female protesters who were protesting.
