Govt Female Employees Call for Freedom to Work

Female employees of the government called on the Islamic Emirate to allow them to continue working at their jobs in government departments. 

The employees said they face an uncertain fate.  

Rukhsar Nazari graduated from the faculty of law and politics and has worked for more than 10 years in government and non-government organizations. Rukhsar said she has become jobless like many other female government employees after the fall of the government.  

“We are facing a complicated and unknown future. We don’t have any plan and we don’t know what we should do. The colleagues with whom I am in contact are also are facing an uncertain future like me,” said Rukhsar, a government employee.  

But the Islamic Emirate said that women employees have not been dismissed but were instead told to stay at home and their salaries will be paid. 

“The women are working in some of the government departments such as the Ministry of Public Health, at Kabul Airport and in other departments. All the progress being made is based on needs and demands,” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for the Islamic Emirate.  

Some say women's lack of access to work is causing a surge in family violence and an increase in mental pressure among women.  

“The women studied to reach a good position in life, they have experience, but unfortunately they are placed at their homes now,” said Saira Saba Alimyar, a women’s rights activist.  

“The Taliban must understand that they cannot have a developed Afghanistan by excluding half of the population. They should have a policy of engagement and acceptance and interaction with the Afghan society,” said Marriam Marouf, a female rights. activist.
