According to the French news agency (AFP), Didier Leschi, the head of France’s immigration department, has stated that five Afghanistani women who were under severe threats from the Taliban have been transferred to Paris.
On Tuesday, September 4, Didier Leschi, the head of France’s immigration department, told the French news agency that five Afghanistani women activists who were facing serious threats from the Taliban had arrived in France.
Earlier, the French President had announced that “women who are primarily threatened by the Taliban and have close ties with the West will be transferred to France.”
This comes as women in Afghanistan have been deprived of all social, political, cultural, educational, and professional spheres by the Taliban.
On the other hand, despite the Taliban’s gender-exclusive approach, protest movements have emerged in Afghanistan over the past two years, challenging their single-gender rule. However, some protesting women have been detained, tortured, and mysteriously killed by the Taliban.
