Life of women in the Middle East and West Behaviors of people depend of: tradition, religion, culture, context,

etc. Although, in some cases is more demanding for women, because they have to live according their family, their parents and their own decisions do not have value. But, what is the difference between women of Middle East and women of West, especially Colombia?

Women of Middle East have a lot of premises with respect their behavior and decisions Allah is Knowing and Wise. For example religion is an important aspect; The Quran says: those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. So, we can see that women do not have power and they have to do all that men say. With regard to the Law, women are looking down because at the moment of a defense two women entitle one man, that law makes an attempt on Rights of Women, especially autonomy, security and personal freedom. Besides, in the culture women do not study because usually their fathers do not let that and women are preparing for get married, since to get married is the most important thing in the life.

On the contrary, In Colombia that has a culture of West; religions or traditions are not the most important aspects in the life style of women. Even if, in some places, decisions and behaviors of women are ruling for their context; for example, if a gangster chooses a poor girl, she has to accept anything that him ask for her security and well- being of her family. However, in Colombia exists Laws for protect women, but some women do not know these laws, as a result, they are fearful of demanding, so they are victims of violence.

When I think about the life of women in the Middle East, their life style refers me to repression, abuses, disgraces, etc. Besides, men of Middle East are support in their religion for subjugate women. In other hand, women of Colombia are unaware of law; therefore they have to live in degrading conditions.

In conclusion, women have to liberate and value themselves, because they can think and see the world in a different way. They can begin participating in the construction of a new society next to the Humans Rights. Besides, all injuries that they have life can change and to convert in the first pass for equally.
