Quoting catwoman

 

 

Yes, exactly. People deserve respect, it´s not their choice what culture they were born in, and it´s not their fault that they were raised with one set of rules and not another. However, the culture and values do not deserve unconditional respect at all. In fact, we must criticize them so that the living conditions for people improve.

 

I agree with this sentence, however....... can´t you blame people for NOT changing (trying to) it? I don´t mean (illiterate) people somewhere far away from any help-source but e.g. educated people in countries where female circumsion is ´normal´ practice? Can´t you blame them for keeping everything the way it was? I don´t think so.

I don´t think it´s so easy. You can imagine a person coming from Saudi Arabia and trying to convince you that their way of living is better and you should change, and since you were informed of the "better" option, you are now to be held accountable for your "wrong" choice...

 

I think that it´s good to work towards equality and empowerment of women around the world, and let them make changes in their communities. These things have to come from within.

Quoting _AE_

 

 

 This is very true actually, like you say people just go where the money is. I don´t know anyone who has moved to Poland, but I know many that have taken jobs and moved to Saudi

 

Of course economy is the key reason of migration but why then people hating the western lifestyle so much move to live there instead of finding the peace in SA or other wealthy Arab States?
