Even though I've never been to Yemen or countries nearby, I could understand a little how things are from what I've seen growing up in my culture. While reading the article, it reminded me of my grandmother, who got married at a considerably young age, didn't even get education, and lived her entire life supporting her family despite the time of crisis during the Korean War. She has always considered herself to be lower than the male family members. Thinking about it, South Korea also had similar practices and didn't protect women's rights in the old days, but now it has almost gone extinct from this modern society. In my opinion it wasn't the law that shaped the South Korean culture to respect women more, because every citizen do not really know their rights and the affect of the laws, but it was more with the media (news, dramas, and books and etc.) that average citizens are exposed to which improved in education and globalization in understanding women rights. As for Yemen, establishing such law could be the first step to securing women rights. But In my opinion,I believe that the culture's globalization to allow citizens to be more open-minded and more education on women's rights to the average citizens is vital to improving the current situation.
