South Asian Women Struggles

South Asian women struggles are many including:

  • Abuse (verbal, physical and sexual)
  • Dowry requirements
  • Acid
  • Forced Marriages
  • Honour Killings
  • Stress
  • Online dating scams
  • Abortion of girls
  • Child marriages
  • Human trafficking
  • Basic rights to have a child, literacy and pursuing a career of their own choosing

Considering things that we take for granted in developed countries:

  • Being able to go out wearing whatever we please as long as it is decent
  • Choosing to travel
  • Eat or drink what we please
  • Have friends and socialize
  • Pursue a career of our choosing
  • Enjoy our own hobbies
  • Own a business
  • Drive
  • Get further education
  • Letting fresh breeze go through our hair
  • Having the sunlight touch our bare skin

The later list sounds so insignificant considering South Asian women struggles in the world.

The purpose to include such blogs are to start a dialogue and create a place for South Asian women to voice their concerns and offer possible solutions.
