A systematic deterioration of women’s rights has occurred under the Taliban, confirmed Alison Davidian UN Women’s Representative in Afghanistan.
In an exclusive interview with Afghanistan International, Davidian said that Afghan women’s social and political status is turbulent.
She emphasised that the resistance of Afghan women and girls is "incredible and brave" and every women’s movement in Afghanistan must be supported.
Davidian added that the Taliban should be held accountable based on their actions, and not statements.
The UN Women’s country representative stressed that the deteriorating situation for Afghan women in the past year has been unpredictable, but added that to prevent further backsliding, there should be sustainable support for the women and girls of Afghanistan.
