One the people are not open to other cultures or religions. One issue is if you know people in power you can get away with crimes like rape. She will not take taxis anywhere or walk anywhere, she has to have only family come get her and take her to places to keep her safe where America that’s not common, you have to be in a bad neighborhood to worry about being hurt. Working as a woman in USA vs India, with her college degree in India her career would be equilivant to min wage here in America, and most places in India work 8-10hr days and 6 days a week.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
