The Life of Women
in the Middle East By: Emory Ann Phillips Afghanistan Under Taliban Without Taliban Education : you could only go to school
if you were accompanied by a male
relative Education : education is optional Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel also provide education Work : you could only go to work if you
were accompanied by a male relative Work : work is allowed, but women have to get permission from a male relative Saudi Arabia and Turkey also require women to have permission from a male relative to work Jobs for Women : the most common jobs for women are teachers, doctors, and nurses Saudi Arabia also has teachers, nurses, and doctors that are women
Turkey also has doctors and teachers -this could possibly lower Afghanistan's GDP per capita because if the male relatives don't approve of the women working, less money is being made -an education will make a better human capital teachers are good to have in your country because they provide students with an education
nurses and doctors are also good to have because they try to help the sick, and cure them from their problems Dress Code : younger girls wear chadors, once they hit puberty or their father thinks they are old enough, they will start wearing burqas Most Saudi Arabians, Turkish women, and Israeli women don't wear the burqa -women like the burqa because they feel is doesn't cause attention to her body, and it is modest
- women dislike the burqa because it can cover up evidence of abuse Afghanistan has arranged marriages. Saudi Arabia and Turkey have arranged marriages
Israel doesn't have arranged marriages, because this country is a little more free -women agree with arranged marriages because they aren't having to worry about having a husband ( one less thing for them to worry about)
