When the whole world is discussing the rights, duties, reliefs, etc. given to the women. Why don’t we look over the laws which are outdated and hilarious at the same time?
They need not exist but they do…
So here in our blog, we have come up with different countries with 7 ancient, sexy and hilarious laws about women. Moving from number 7 to number 1.
Don’t know why but the government of Iran wants to turn fields like Science and Engineering into male-only. Due to the same reason, approx 30+ universities have restricted women from studying selected subjects at their universities.
On number 6 we have China. The country’s one-child policy has increased the percentile of gender-selective abortion. The development and use of ultrasound technology are higher in China than any other country across the globe. Although this law is no longer in practice since 2016, it would really take ages for China to fill the gender gap created so far.
5) Democratic Republic Of Congo
‘The women is a TRACTOR’
This line goes perfectly with the status of women in DRC. Here women are supposed to produce, work and handle the complete family weight and yet live an oppressed life.
There are formal and customary laws in place that both contribute to the disadvantaged position of women. The formal law says a woman needs her hubby’s permission to purchase the land, on the other hand, the customary law says women are not allowed to purchase, inherit or sell the land.
Women have no option they live with their fathers in his house before marriage and with their hubby in his house after marriage.
