The move is the latest among a series of gender-oppressive measures in Afghanistan that country’s Taliban rulers have imposed to curtail women’s rights and freedoms in the country.

Women in Afghanistan will be denied entry to amusement parks in the country, the Taliban government’s “morality police” ordered on Wednesday.

The ban adds to a series of gender-oppressive measures imposed by the Taliban-led government after it dethroned the democratically-elected Ashraf Ghani government in Kabul last August, followed by a chaotic exit of the last US forces stationed there in operative capacity since the aftermath of September 11, 2001 attacks.
