A day in the life of a Brampton South Asian Woman

A day in the life of a Brampton South Asian Woman is a story of a decent size of women, but not all.

She comes to the promised land married to a man who is supposed to make her life easier.

Her passport and documents are taken. (She cannot run away)

She is registered at a factory to work. (Forget about any higher education that she may have received)

She wakes up and makes everyone breakfast and lunch.

Her typical day starts with being dropped off at the factory (Doesn’t know how to drive) where other women also speak her language. (Doesn’t learn English or the Culture)

She comes home, cooks, cleans and takes care of her kids.

She goes upstairs has sex with her husband.

She is off to bed and another day starts all over again for her.

If her husband is an alcoholic, has another woman or beats her up, she does not know her rights or access to the outside world.

Even if she knows the rights, those privileges don’t apply to her.

Why?

Forget about the emotional, financial and psychological abuse, it has no significance because she is conditioned to believe it to be a normal behavior.

If she calls the police because she is being physically abused, the pressure from parents, siblings and relatives where is she going to go.

She stands to loose her children, her home and her husband’s paycheque.

How many choices are left? If any?
