The Working Group on Gender in Humanitarian Action and the Humanitarian Access Group published the results of the seventh round of their survey aimed at investigating the operational trends after the order banning women from working in international institutions.
The report found that 18 percent of female employees in surveyed organizations now work from home, a 6 percent decrease from the previous report in September.
It is also stated in the section of the report that 45% of the respondents said that they work with women and men to some extent; While 27% work entirely with men and women.
It is further stated that women’s access to work and assistance is still affected by several obstacles imposed by various ministries of the current government. 60% of the respondents said that they face problems in registering new projects with awareness raising components, which are of particular importance to reach women and girls. Half of the responding organizations have problems registering projects related to female employees.
The gender working group in humanitarian action and the humanitarian access group have said in this report that the “dress code” for women by the current government has also affected the work process of various institutions in Afghanistan. 60% of organizations reported to this organization that female employees censor their movements due to the fear of being caught.
The evaluation of these institutions shows that various obstacles from the current government have affected the meaningful participation of women, both as employees and as recipients of aid.
Also, 66% of the respondents said that more than ever, working from home has affected the ability of their female employees to interact with other team members.
Meanwhile, the current government banned women’s work in international institutions on December 24, 2022. Before this, various international institutions have warned that banning women from working in these institutions has affected the process of providing aid, especially for women and girls.
