Taliban Says It will Honor Women's Rights "within Islam Law"

The Taliban takeover is an alarming call to human rights, especially that of women. The group is notorious for severely suppressing women's rights and even publicly executing women. A Taliban spokesperson said in his first press conference on Tuesday that women's rights and independent media will be honored, but "within Islam Law." Dr. Shanthie D'Souza, non-resident scholar at Middle East Institute, joined Cheddar's Opening Bell to break down what Taliban takeover means to women's rights in Afghanistan.
