The article discusses a new paper by University of Michigan Law School professor and Special Rapporteur in cultural rights at the United Nations, Karima Bennoune. Bennoune argues that the current situation in Afghanistan amounts to gender apartheid and emphasizes the Taliban’s history of discrimination against women and girls, and argues that the recent Taliban takeover of Afghanistan has led to a significant rollback of women’s rights. Overall, the paper highlights the urgent need for action to address the Afghanistan crisis and protect women’s rights.
