Since things went so well last time, my advice for the State Department would be to stay out of Afghanistan’s business. Especially if they find the Taliban’s policies to be offensive. Just send the customary “we don’t like you” letter.
I don’t like the Taliban’s policies much myself but hey ho, their country their rules. The Afghans didn’t seem overly welcoming of western liberalism. Kabul and it’s carefully cultivated westernised elite is not indicitive of the rest of the country. These things can’t be forced (obviously) and social changes if they are to be must be allowed to occur naturally at their own pace.
all-male Taliban government

They haven’t won. There is more information about corruption and conspiracy accessible now then ever before and being more widely disseminated as well.

That is the thing. The Afghan people had a taste of freedom and was able to understand that it wasn’t just words and platitudes. They will not be able to provide that for their children making life worse than they had it which is a driving factor in human development to make things as good or better for your children as it was for you.
When these women are grandmothers telling the grandchildren stories of what they experienced...that could be the spark for change. Look at the idealism of Millennials and their Hippie grandparents or the independent stoicism of Gen X and their Great Depression grandparents.
