Female presenters prohibited from appearing on TV in Afghanistan


  • Female presenters are prohibited from appearing on TV without headscarves and banned from appearing in television dramas in Afghanistan under new rules imposed by the Taliban government.
  • The Taliban seized power in Afghanistan in mid-August  and immediately instructed girls and young women to stay home from school. During their previous rule in the 1990s, women were barred from education and the workplace.
