What Kills A Young Woman - Part II

Male guardianship.

I make most of my life changing decisions in the clinic, affecting people's lives, and my guardian isn't there to scrutinise these decisions. Thus, why is this guardian scrutinising other decisions that are less likely to get anyone killed or disabled?

If I can be trusted with the lives of so many people, why can't I be trusted with mine? I make my living by improving their lives, so could I please have my life?

  1. That is a very difficult question to answer unfortunately not because the answer is complicated but because the current mentality of the community is not Moahalah to hear it!

  2. It is such a sad reality of many societies in the world that they do not think women capable enough to take care of themselves. Even though the world is progressing with every passing day, but this mentality is pretty strong amongst many people.
