Female TV journalists left their faces uncovered during Saturday’s radio broadcast. In doing so, they violated the orders of the ruling Taliban. On Friday, they announced that from now on only the eyes of female television journalists would be seen.

Since returning to power last year, the Taliban have imposed a series of restrictions on civil society, many of them aimed at curtailing women’s rights.

Earlier this month, the Taliban’s supreme leader issued an order requiring women to cover themselves completely, including their faces, in public, preferably with the traditional burqa. Previously, only a headdress covering the hair was sufficient.

Female journalists from TOLOnews, Shamshad TV and 1TV went live without covering their faces. “Our female colleagues are afraid that they will cover their faces, the next thing they will be told is to stop working,” said Abed Ehsas, head of news at Shamshad TV. “That’s why they haven’t complied yet.”

Muhammad Sadiq Akef Muhajir, a spokesman for the Ministry of Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, warned against women violating Taliban directives. “If they don’t comply, we will talk to those responsible,” he said. “Anyone who lives under a certain system and government must obey the laws and orders of that system, so they must carry out the order.”
