We are Girls

In our tribal village women are restricted to their homes. For girls, decisions of their lives are made by others, and girls as young as nine and ten are forbidden to go out without a veil. Notions of great absurdity are common like a man is equal to two women and that's why men can be polygamous. A woman is a half man and other things of the sort are culturally accepted and asked for. Even in our tribal culture, for the murder of a man, blood money is the marriage of two women into that family.
