Some female journalists said that they are occasionally banned from attending press conferences held by government institutions.
These journalists criticized what they consider gender discrimination against female journalists.
"Sadly, we were kicked out of the press conferences in which we participated. I ask the government to join hands and give women a share so that they can work alongside their brothers,” said Nilab Noori, a journalist.
"There were some problems in this regard, when they wanted to make a report from some exhibitions, they were not being allowed,” said Fatana Bayat, a journalist.
However, some media-supporting groups are concerned about this matter and claim that restricting the employment of female journalists may result in a gap in the supply of information.
"It's not a good way for press freedom and access to information, and this in itself is a form of restriction, and there shouldn't be discrimination in the work of providing information," said Abdul Qadim Viyar, head of the Committee for the Safety of Afghan Journalists.
According to Zabihullah Mujahid, spokesman for the Islamic Emirate, there are no barriers preventing female journalists from working in the media in accordance with Islamic law.
Mujahid noted that the media law has been sent to the leader of the Islamic Emirate for approval, but nothing has been said about preventing the work of female journalists.
"The media law, which has been sent to the leadership and is currently yet to be approved, does not contain such a thing. We do not have any restrictions in this regard, but of course, Islamic laws, Islamic values, the hijab for women, and also protecting the high interests of the country are mentioned in it, which we are all obliged to comply with,” Mujahid added.
According to figures of some groups supporting the media, after the political change in the country, 94% of female journalists have become unemployed due to restrictions on the work of female journalists.
