It is very evident that as we read “Infidel” women have no rights. There validation and quality of life is controlled by men. She is ruled by her father, then he chooses a husband for her.
“Baari” is like a pious slave she honors her husband’s family, she feeds them without question or complaint, she never whines, she is strong in service, she keeps her head bowed he has the right to rape and beat her, and marry as many women as he wants to. She is devoted to her husband,she is a well-trained work horse.
IYBC I am curious to know how much of this is culture or religion. The faith of the Somalian people is Muslim. It would be unfair to say that all men who practice the Muslim faith treat women as they don’t exist.
IYBC lets reflect on the Christian faith do some men interpret the scriptures to justify how they treat women or their wives?
What about the woman is who is abused in a marriage or relationship she is a prime example of a ” Baari ” woman. Let’s not forget about the woman who is a prostitute that is exploited sexually by her pimp.
IYBC there many facets to the Muslim faith, just as they are to the Christian faith.
What are your thoughts? What is the culture? Is tradition a factor?
What is the common denominator of the Muslim faith verses the Christian faith?
Women’s medical care, birth control and equal pay is in the news and headlines, are we on our way to being ” Baari” women?
