Women After the Taliban
Who are the Taliban
Afghanistan Before and After the Taliban
The Taliban is a group of fundamentalist Sunni Muslim militants living today mostly near the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Women Before the Taliban
They enforced rules they said were "un-Islamic", such as:
Women had to wear a head to toe covering called a burqa
Music and television were banned
Men whose beards were deemed too short were jailed
Disapproved of girls aged 10 and over from going to school
What Afghanistan was like before and after the Taliban
Before the Taliban many of the women had freedom.
Women had the right to inheritance, the right to vote,the right to work, and to even choose their own partners in marriage.
The Taliban was controlling most of Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001.
During the rule of the Taliban (1996-2001) women were treated worse than any other society.
They were forbidden to do anything such as:
-leave the house without a male escort in the family,
- not allowed to seek medical help,
- forced to cover themselves from head to toe.
Rules after the Taliban
The Taliban took over the southern city of Kandahar in November of 1994, and took over Kabul in September of 1996.
The Taliban began to call out to the other countries after they destroyed the ancient, stone, Buddah statues in Bamiyan
