Taliban say they will protect women’s rights under the “limits of Islam” following takeover of Afghanistan

According to Sky News, during a press conference today, a Taliban spokesperson pledged that the new government would protect women’s rights “within the limits of Islam.”

Despite widespread criticism for his handling of the U.S. military operation in Afghanistan, President Biden defended the decision to withdraw from the country during remarks to the nation Monday.

However to a new Trafalgar poll, the majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the U.S. military in Afghanistan.

The poll found 69% Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of the U.S.’s military presence in Afghanistan that resulted in the Taliban taking over. A scant 23% approved.
