Protesting women in the Afghan capital, Kabul, have been barred from entering the presidential palace.

According to Afghan media reports, Taliban forces prevented female protesters from entering the presidential palace, while the women alleged that tear gas was used.

According to TOLOnews, women will be allowed to work in government institutions in Afghanistan, but they will not be given any position, which is why women are protesting.

Tarnam Saeedi, a civil society activist, said that no society can develop without the active role of women. Therefore, the political participation of women in the future government and cabinet should be considered.

“We want to work like men under Islamic law,” said Razia, a civil society activist.

Earlier in the day, the announcement of a new government for Afghanistan, which was to be made by the Taliban on Friday, September 3, was postponed.

Foreign media claimed that Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the head of the Taliban’s political office in Qatar, would lead the new Afghan government.
