Security officials in Ghazni province have reported that a newlywed woman has hanged herself in this province, putting an end to her life.

Khalid Sarhadi, the spokesperson for the Ghazni security department, stated to the media on Thursday, February 29th, that this incident occurred in the “Qarabagh” district of this province.

According to this security official, the girl committed this act at her father’s house, while her husband was in Iran.

This comes as a UN report released about five months ago emphasized that girls suffer from severe depression.

The Women’s Division of the United Nations and UNAMA stated in a survey they conducted that 69% of girls and women suffer significantly from feelings of anxiety, loneliness, and depression.

Amid the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, Afghan girls face numerous struggles and challenges, particularly concerning education. The Taliban’s policies restrict girls’ access to education, severely limiting their opportunities for learning and personal growth. Many schools for girls have been shut down or repurposed, denying them their fundamental right to education.

Employment opportunities for Afghan girls have drastically diminished under the Taliban rule. With restrictive policies and societal norms that often bar women from working outside the home, many girls find themselves confined to domestic roles, unable to pursue careers or contribute to the workforce.

Furthermore, Afghan girls are subjected to systematic violations of their human rights, including forced marriages, domestic abuse, and discrimination. The Taliban’s oppressive regime perpetuates a culture of misogyny and gender-based violence, leaving girls vulnerable to exploitation and harm. The lack of legal protections and enforcement mechanisms exacerbates their vulnerability, trapping them in cycles of abuse and marginalization.
