The Disabled Yemeni Woman

Raja' Abdullah Ahmad al-Musaabi

Abstract


The number of disabled women in the Republic of Yemen is more than a million. Yemeni society is conservative and individuals cling to the prevalent customs and traditions that oppress women, treat them unjustly and consider them inferior. This contradicts Islam, a religion that honors women and has given them many of the rights which some try to deprive them of in the name of customs and traditions, and sometimes in the name of false interpretations of Islam. Inequality is prevalent in spite of the fact that most of the government laws do not discriminate against women and do not prevent them from obtaining their rights.
