Afghanistan: Taliban Sends Abused Women To Prison – UN

The Taliban government in Afghanistan is putting women abuse survivors in prison and claiming it is for their protection, according to a UN report.

The UN said the practice harms the survivors’ mental and physical health.

There are also no more state-sponsored women’s shelters as the Taliban government sees no need for such centres, the report noted.

The Taliban’s suppression of women’s rights in Afghanistan is one of the harshest in the world.

The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan’s (UNAMA) said that gender-based violence against Afghan women and girls was known to be high even before the Taliban took over Afghanistan.
