Discrimination against Afghan women, a crime against humanity: UN

A team of experts from the United Nations (UN) has concluded that the exclusion of Afghan women from public, political, and social life by the Taliban government can be considered a crime against humanity.

“The de facto authorities appear to be governing through systemic discrimination with the intent to subjugate women and girls to total domination,” stated Richard Bennett, UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in Afghanistan, before the UN Human Rights Council.

He said that this discrimination could even be characterized as “gender apartheid” and that a survey revealed that nearly 50 percent of interviewed Afghan women knew at least one woman or girl who had experienced anxiety or depression since the Taliban’s return.
