Incoming disillusionment for anyone who somehow managed to convince themselves that when the US, UK et al asked the Taliban to please guarantee the protection of women after they chaotically withdrew their troops that it would actually mean something. The Taliban administration said yes, sure, of course, we’ll respect women’s rights.

In reality, so far the women of Afghanistan have been banned from attending middle school, high school, universities or certain types of religious classes. They’re also prohibited from most forms of employment. They can’t visit parks or gyms, and are obligated to wear full-coverage clothing in other public areas. There’s a concern this is a dismal journey towards even more absolute rights-stripping, such that Afghan women may soon be prohibited from leaving their homes more generally.
