United Nations Urges Taliban To Reverse Ban on Women Working for NGOs in Afghanistan

Monday, 12/26/2022

Acting head of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Afghanistan (UNAMA), Ramiz Alakbarov, has met with Mohammad Hanif, the Taliban’s minister of economy, and urged the group to reverse its decision of banning women who work for non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

UNAMA announced that millions of Afghans need humanitarian assistance and removing barriers is vital.

The Taliban’s order on banning women to work in non-governmental organisations comes days after the group banned Afghan girls from pursuing higher education in Afghanistan.

International organisations have reacted to the Taliban’s decision and stressed that the group will deepen the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan by banning women employees from work.
