AP, Dec. 3 - the Afghan Taliban interim government today issued a decree on women's rights. Mujahid, spokesman of the interim government, quoted the newly promulgated decree as saying that "women are not property, but noble and free people". The law has made provisions on women's marriage and property, which stipulates that women should not be forced to marry, and the wife should have the right to obtain her property after the death of her husband. The decree does not mention the work and education of women concerned by the outside world. In response to the issue of women's rights concerned by the international community, mujahid previously revealed that women's education in Afghanistan has recovered nearly 70%. At the same time, he stressed that the freezing of Afghan overseas assets by the United States and others has led to economic deterioration. If it can be lifted, a comprehensive restoration of women's education is just around the corner.
