Abstract

One of the most regressive socio-political events to take place in late 2022 was the Taliban regime’s decision to officially reduce the female population of Afghanistan to second-class citizens. It did so after a slow choreographed policy undertaking. What started as advisory on dress code for women – following it assuming power on 15 Aug. 2021 – has metamorphosed into barring them from schools and universities and literally disenfranchising them from right to education. The year 2023 has begun for most Afghan women when they find themselves squeezed out of all public places.
