The Taliban administration in Afghanistan had stopped women NGO workers from working. Most of the girls’ high schools have also been closed by the authorities. Stopping women from working and banning education is being condemned internationally. Western diplomats have indicated that the Taliban need to change course on their policies towards women in order to gain formal international recognition and reduce their economic isolation.

Many other countries including India have been providing humanitarian aid in Afghanistan. At the same time, the Taliban is firm on its old attitude of persecuting women.
