Oppression Stories

“I am a housewife living in Usak. I have a daughter and a son in their twenties. They are both physically and mentally disabled by birth. They cannot walk, speak and understand what is said. Their mouths are always open and they need to wear baby bibs. Until now, we got by with my husband’s salary, which he earned as a civil servant. We did not need any help from anyone. Yet, one day he was fired from his job as a result of our government’s delegated legislation (KHK). After that, they imprisoned my husband, who was too kind to hurt an ant. I was not able to look after my disabled children. What can I do alone as a woman?”
