تأثير اللجوء على النساء السوريات



مريم:
'هالولاد يللي كلها بلبنان، نصها ما بتتعلم هلأ. يعني مش حرام؟
بس يكبرو شو بدهم يصيروا، شو بدهم يشتغلوا؟ رح يصيروا عتالين، شو بدهم يخدموا البلد؟
لما بدي إكبر، بدي صير دكتورة، بدي كون مهمة ب الحياة. البنات يللي من عمري، عميروحوا يشتغلوا بالسهل، بدل ما يروحوا عالمدرسة وعم يضحكوا عليهن، عم يستغلوهن عم يعطوهن بس ٣ الأف ليرة، أو ٦ الأف، بيشتغلوا من أول النهار لنص الليل.'
