The Notion of Gender Justice and the Resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan

Gender in Islam has been interpreted in various ways by the Taliban, a terrorist organization now ruling in Afghanistan. This paper considers how the Taliban and Islam view gender and how different interpretations have deprived women and children of their basic rights. The paper will compare ideas of gender justice in Afghanistan before the Taliban came to power and after it fell and rose again, and the current state of gender justice in Afghanistan.
