Afghan Taliban Order Female News Anchors To Cover Their Faces On Air - News Summed Up

Afghan Taliban Order Female News Anchors To Cover Their Faces On Air


On one station, Shamshad TV, implementation of the order was mixed: One woman anchor appeared with a face mask Thursday, while another later in the day went without, showing her face. But in recent weeks, they have taken a sharp, hard-line pivot that confirmed the worst fears of rights activists. Earlier this month, the Taliban ordered all women in public to wear head-to-toe clothing that leaves only their eyes visible. The decree said women should leave the home only when necessary and that male relatives would face punishment for women’s dress code violations, starting with a summons and escalating to court hearings and jail time. The Taliban leader also issued a decree barring girls from attending school after the sixth grade, reversing previous promises by Taliban officials that girls of all ages would be allowed an education.
