Monday Musings: Women

I just read a book: "Princess: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia. It was by a member of the Saudi Royal Family. It got me thinking about my girl's lives. They are very lucky not to have to worry about a father or other figure in control of their lives. Telling them to stay at home, not being able to go out alone, or forcing them to marry whoever they choose. What an awful life! Yes the princess had everything she needed growing up that money could buy, but she didn't have freedom of choice. Luckily the man her father picked turned out well, but it could have been quite a different life for her.

Why do women have to live this way?
