What I Learned

I learned a lot about unfair treatment between men and women. There is many things that happen to women out in other countries that we most people don't know of. They punish women by making them pay $100 and 40 lashes. 1 lash hurts imagine getting 40. i would never be able to live in one of those countries if I was a women.
