Taliban Orders Women in Afghanistan to Be Covered From Head-to-Toe While in Public

Taliban leadership in Afghanistan ordered all Afghan women to wear all-covering clothing in public on Saturday.

The new decree, reported by ABC News, says women should only leave the house when necessary and that dress-code violations may lead to male relatives facing jail time. The order follows one issued by Taliban leadership last month, making it so women couldn’t travel alone—which has since been ignored to an extent, per ABC.
