Afghanistan – Situation of women (5 April 2024)

France condemns in the strongest possible terms the Taliban’s recent decision to resume stoning women to death and inflicting corporal punishment upon them.

This horrific decision comes in addition to the many other violations of fundamental rights and freedoms committed by the Taliban against Afghan women since they took power by force in August 2021. We urge the Taliban to reverse its policy of oppression and erasure of women and girls. Together with active contributions from France, the UN Security Council has established that respect for women’s rights is a precondition for any dialogue.
