Pakistani women do not vote because men will touch them

This is how women stay powerless. The headlines on May 6, 2013 {Vancouver Sun] said that Pakistani women do not vote. And why not? According to the news the women say “It is the will of my husband” and ” This is the decision of all the families.” Besides, women who vote will teased or touched, so the women are “happy” to stay safe in the security (prison) of their homes, away from those dangerous polling booths. And the laws never change and the men that touch and tease women are never questioned. And so the cycle goes, sadly.
