An official announced on Monday that the Taliban have prohibited families and women from visiting restaurants in Afghanistan’s northwestern Herat province that have gardens or green spaces due to complaints from religious scholars and members of the public about gender mixing in those areas. This is the latest of numerous restrictions that the Taliban have imposed since they assumed power in August 2021, including barring girls beyond sixth grade from attending school and women from working in most types of employment, including the United Nations, and from public spaces such as parks and gyms. Authorities have cited gender mixing or improper wearing of the hijab as reasons for these measures.
