279 Words2 Pages
Synthesis essay I’m defending the claim that women’s rights are suppressed in the Middle East and that they should strive to give women freedom such as western women have. Source c states that a new law was introduced that allowed marital rape. This law that was approved also makes it illegal for a woman to resist her husband’s sexual advances. She must also have her husband’s permission to work outside the home or go to school. This is evidence that the women in this part of the world are oppressed and abused. What kind of civil people would legalize rape and deny women basic rights that men have. Religion and culture is not excuse to treat people inhumanly. The women of this culture have suffered horribly because of this law. Source G talks about the daily struggle of a woman living under the Taliban regime. These women can’t even walk outside there house with out completely coving themselves, getting rid of any bit of self expression. Its taboo for women to shake hands with men. A women seen talking to a man is punishable by death. That is just wrong. In the book kite runner the hazara are discriminated against greatly. The Taliban forces them to leave or be killed. My counter argument is that these people have been living like this for a long time. Who are we to go into there countrys and try to change there way of life enough it seems very immoral to us. In conclusion I believe that women in these countrys should stand up for themselves and fight against the unfair laws that men and their culture have put upon
