I want to talk about this issue since I want to talk about Afghan women roles in a book I read. I think my father treated his horses better than his wives or kids. In his opinion women were made to wait on him hand in foot. Jump when UR told to jump & high how high on the way up! My parents divorced when I was 12 yr. ol. By the time Iwas 13 yrs, that summer I had to learn how to cook for a haying crew. Iwas told not asked. I was also responsible for my 2 bro's 5& 7 yrs, if they got in trouble I got in trouble. I was responsible for the laundry ,cleaning the house, plus mantain my grades in school. I was allow to voice my own opinions, talk back etc or I get a swift kick or a slap in the face!
After I watched my g-mother,g-aunts wait on the men etc. I was determined to get a college education. I didn't want to live my life this way. I married Allen when I was 28 almost 29 yrs old. I married a man as different as my father as I could. We have been maried 31 yrs this week.
I feel women should have a say in the house,be an equal partner in the r/ship. women are not sex slaves,property to be owned,dominated or abused.
