"A major cause of the persistence of existing gender roles is that many men in the formal sector work long hours, providing at least a partial explanation of why they are not assuming a greater share of family responsibilities. In countries such as Indonesia, Republic of Korea, and Pakistan, more than 30% of all employees work more than 48 hours per week. Male employees especially tend to work excessive hours—both a consequence and cause of gender stereotypes reinforcing the existing division of labor (Lee, McCann, and Messenger 2007, p. 240)"(6)

“In the healing centers we visited, people were chained. They had a 2-to 4-meter radius to move, defecate and urinate. They were not allowed to bathe. Instead a bucket of water would be thrown on them once a day. We also found evidence of forced seclusion as punishment. … The situation for women was particularly bad. Especially when women are chained or put in isolation, the risk of physical and sexual abuse is very high. In one case a woman told me that a male staff member had touched her vagina that very morning just for fun. She was chained, so she could neither move away nor defend herself, and ...more

“While mental hospitals were for the most part very clean, social care institutions were overcrowded and unsanitary. In one institution I had to tiptoe over women’s limbs to enter a room that was meant for 30 people, but that accommodated 90 women. The toilet was an open drain inside the room. Lice were rampant and many had scabies, which in these overcrowded conditions becomes very infectious” (para 5). “In the healing centers we visited, people were chained.

“The worst case we found was a woman who was locked up for 15 years, defecating, urinating, eating in the room where she was kept. She was locked up because she had been raiding the neighbors’ crops. As the father was tired of having to pay for the damages, and the advice of traditional healers did not improve her condition, he decided to lock her up in her own house. The windows had been partially boarded up, so it took a while for my eyes to adjust to the darkness. But then I saw this woman crouching on the floor, completely naked, amid a pile of rubble. She was so ...more
