A perspective on the two-year protests of the Purple Saturdays movement under the rule of the Taliban group

In this two-year period under the rule of the Taliban group, the Purple Saturdays movement, along with other forms of protest and resistance, has actually played an important role in raising awareness about the rights and freedoms of Afghanistan women under the rule. The Taliban group acts as a powerful symbol of rebellion and resistance and shows the determination of Afghanistan women to assert their rights and challenge oppressive policies. By organizing and participating in these demonstrations, Afghanistan women have been able to draw attention to the issues they face and support change. This movement has helped amplify their voices and shed light on the importance of women’s rights and gender equality in Afghanistan. However, it is important to acknowledge that the Taliban’s response to such protests has often been met with violence. This group has a history of suppressing the opposition and using force to maintain control. This poses significant risks to the safety and security of those involved in the movement. The long-term impact of the Purple Saturdays movement and other forms of protest depends on various factors, including political and social dynamics in Afghanistan, international support for women’s rights, and the actions and policies of the Taliban. It is necessary to support Afghanistan women and defend their rights inside and outside. Because the Taliban group has a long history of violating women’s rights in Afghanistan, and there have been concerns that the situation has worsened in the past two years. Under the Taliban regime, women have faced severe restrictions on their freedoms and have been exposed to discriminatory practices. The Taliban’s interpretation of Islamic law has led to the imposition of severe gender segregation, restrictions on women’s mobility, and restrictions on their access to education, employment, health care, and participation in public life. Women and girls are forced to follow strict dress codes and punishments for possible violations. This violation of women’s rights has had a destructive effect on their well-being, independence and opportunities for personal and professional growth. It is very important that we continue to advocate for the protection and promotion of women’s rights in Afghanistan and hold the Taliban accountable for their actions. Efforts should be focused on supporting Afghanistan women, providing them with access to education, health care, and economic opportunities, and ensuring their safety and security against ongoing challenges. International pressure and support for women’s rights organizations and activists in Afghanistan are necessary to deal with these violations and strive for a more inclusive and just society.
