They might go to the USA, they might go to the UK, they might settle anywhere in the Western world, study the hardest, be the most expensively and extensively educated, earn in the millions, and live as modern a lifestyle as anybody in the West… but in the end, they don’t change at all. Nothing changes. Attitudes remain as anti-female as that of anyone from the poorest, uneducated, illiterate and blindly superstitious masses that never knew a world outside their village, never mind their country. When will they learn to love their daughters? It is all more depressing than words can ever convey.

if you ask them they will say that they are following their 'culture' and not getting corrupted by evil western influences.

Misogynistic bastards - the women included.

Oh, this is so sad. And when people do have daughters, all others want to know is what marriage plans have been made for them. Not their education, not their careers, not what they love to do. It makes me mad.
