Afghanistan: The Taliban’s War on Women

After 20 years of war, Afghanistan’s capital Kabul has fallen to the Taliban. What will this mean for women and girls? Do they have a future, or could the reintroduction of Sharia law end any hope of freedom?

On the Sky News Daily podcast, Katerina Vittozzi speaks to a young woman living in Kabul about the fears she has for herself and her family. Plus, Mona Tajali, Associate Professor of International Relations and Women’s Studies at Agnes Scott College, explains how women working as journalists and policymakers are now under threat. Sky’s Stuart Ramsay gives his account of life on the streets of the capital, as residents attempt to flee in any way they can.
