In today’s episode, you will hear a lawyer-in-training, Batoul, speaking about her experiences in terms of gender-based discrimination. Coming from Amman, Jordan, she experienced different forms of inequality as a woman, being in a culture that tends to place women second to men.
She talked of how she faced gender-based hardships in the country’s laws and within family affairs. She brings to light what it feels like to be a Jordanian woman in a culture that lacks equality for its citizens.
In this series we will be talking to different women of various socio-economic backgrounds, hoping to get their stories and perceptions about women inequality.
We will focus on two questions: 1.) Do you think women’s inequality still exists in society today? 2.) Have you ever experienced any form of inequality or discrimination as a woman and please elaborate?
