"But I'm a different breed of man, Mariam. Where I come from, one wrong look, one improper word, and blood is spilled. Where I come from, a woman's face is her husband's business only. I want you to remember that. Do you understand?" Rasheed is trying to make it seem like he doing something to help Mariam but all he’s doing is oppressing her. This is the same thing Jalil did to Mariam when he found her a suitor. I think there are better ways to show your wife you care and you want to protect her. Chapter 11 Chapter 11 Yes, modern Afghan women married to modern Afghan men who did not mind that their wives walked among strangers with makeup on their faces and nothing on their heads. Mariam admired the social freedom that the modern Afghan women had in the city. She felt below those women because she couldn’t make her own decision. She imagined that they all had university degrees, which they worked in office buildings, behind desks of their own, where they typed and smoked and made important telephone calls to important people. This shows that not all Afghan women are treated unequally by men. Chapter 12 Chapter 12 "Best you stay away. She's a nosy gossiper, that one. And the husband fancies himself some kind of educated intellectual But he's a mouse. Look at him. Doesn't he look like a mouse?" This quote appealed to me because it made wonder what Fariba and Hakim were really like. On every page were women, beautiful women, who wore no shirts, no trousers, no socks or underpants. They wore nothing at all. They lay in beds amid tumbled sheets and gazed back at Mariam with half-lidded eyes. In most of the pictures, their legs were apart, and Mariam had a full view of the dark place between. It shocked me that Mariam found pornography in Rasheed’s room. This adds more drama to the story. Mariam feels like she is not meeting his needs as a wife should.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
