Another tale from the Saudi Creept

Via: Mick

A study, conducted by Khaled Al-Radihan, 51, an assistant professor of anthropology at King Saud University in Riyadh, involving 267 women, concluded "that 67 percent of women suffer from economic abuse":

"economic abuse is when the husband forcefully takes his wife’s money or when he applies for a bank loan under her name without her consent..... also ... depriving her of her inheritance, which is very common here,”

What is the reason for these kinds of abuse?

Al-Radihan offers an explanation:

"Many reasons lead to violence against women. She could be really stubborn and difficult to deal with, she might have unbearable financial demands and she might not obey her male guardian,"

Does that mean that if a woman becomes more congenial and obedient, less demanding, she can get to keep the money she earns and lay possession to her inheritance?
