Afghanistan: Taliban Ban Women From National Park
Thursday, August 31, 2023 1:55 PM

The Taliban government has banned women from the popular Band-e-Amir National Park.  The acting minister of vice and virtue complained that women had not been properly wearing the hijab at the park, and said "Going sightseeing is not a must for women."  The move is in contrast to the hiring of the first female rangers at the park in 2013.
