The Taliban Are Outlawing Women’s Beauty Salons

From an AP story by Riazat Butt headlined “The Taliban are outlawing women’s beauty salons in Afghanistan”:

ISLAMABAD (AP) — The Taliban are banning women’s beauty salons in Afghanistan.

It’s the latest curb on the rights and freedoms of Afghan women and girls, following edicts barring them from education, public spaces and most forms of employment.

A spokesman for the Taliban-run Virtue and Vice Ministry, Mohammad Sidik Akif Mahajar, didn’t give details of the ban. He only confirmed the contents of a letter circulating on social media.
