Law:The Stop Gender Apartheid in Afghanistan Act
The Stop Gender Apartheid in Afghanistan Act
WHEREAS on September 27, 1996, the Taliban, a fundamentalist Islamic militia, seized control of the capital of Afghanistan, Kabul, and violently plunged the occupied territories of Afghanistan into a brutal state of gender apartheid in which women and girls have been stripped of their basic human rights; and
WHEREAS under Taliban rule women have been stripped of their visibility, voice, and mobility, and women are forbidden to work outside of the home, and girls and women are prohibited from attending schools and universities, and women are forced to wear the burqa--a voluminous garment which completely shrouds the body under thick layers of fabric, leaving only a small mesh opening through which to breathe and see--and women can not leave the confines of their homes unless accompanied by a close male relative, and homes with women must have their windows painted black to hide the women from view, and women are forbidden to wear white socks, and their shoes can not make noise when they walk; and
WHEREAS Taliban Law is in opposition to Islam;
THEREFORE the Ziu condemns the Taliban Islamic Militia for their gender apartheid, and not recognize the Taliban as a legitimate government in Afghanistan, and do everything in their power to restore women's human rights to work, education, health care and safety in Afghanistan.
