How Yemenis View Educated Women
By: Fatima Uqba, Sanaa.

Afaf Al-Haimi, MA degree, Department of Sociology, teacher of Medical Sociology. Married with 4 children. She said:
"Our society views women as inferior whether they are educated or not. An educated woman is a better housewife. Education bestows on women composure and strong personality.
"However, men like very young and uneducated women. From my experience as a wife, mother, student, and teacher, I can feel the stress, but never heard a harsh word from anyone in my family or from my colleagues."

Raja'a Al-Masa'abi, MA Degree in Women's Information, Information Department. Unmarried. She said:
"Men's backward view of educated women is a common one. I consider education for women like a weapon in war. An educated women is generally more considerate towards the need of her husband and children. The main drawback is that she is always nervous because she has more responsibilities - at home and in her career.
"From my experience, men are selfish. They prefer young and uneducated women because they are easier to control and boss around. Personally I'm proud of my education."
