New Taliban rules require Afghan women to have escorts

The official new rules do not prevent women from traveling alone near their homes. The Taliban, who took power in Afghanistan in August, last month banned women from traveling more than 48 miles without one mahramor male guardian, based on the group’s harsh interpretation of Islam.
