With great pride 35- year-old Sirhan describes the way in which he shot and killed his 16-year old sister Suzanne Cheerful and at ease he is completely contented to tell his story He shot Suzanne in the head four times last March three days after she reported to the police that she had been raped Sirhan fully believes that the rape was Suzannes fault - her mistake - regardless of the fact that it was done against her will Although he thought he was committing a capital crime at the time Sirhan was not deterred because he fully believes that his sister had to be killed for what happened to her in order to restore family pride Says Sirhan its better to have one person die than to have the whole family die from shame The beliefs and attitudes of Sirhan are not uncommon in Jordan unfortunately nor are they among men in North America Women constantly have to deal with disrespect and abuse from men Men view women as inferior and this stifles the growth of women as a whole throughout the world In North America treatment and expectations of women have improved but they are not yet at the point that women are deemed equal to men in all aspects of society Although North American society has come a long way when compared to that of Jordan in terms of treatment and expectation of women it still has a long way to go The standards of our society still in many ways mirror those of Jordanian society We inhabit two completely opposite ends of the earth but are our treatments and expectations of women that far removed from those of the Jordanian society The ways that we view the roles of women in society are quite broad and unestablished Women today still fight for equality and respect The actions of others especially men towards women and the pre-set standards
