    Hello Team
    n her family, they believe that in boys specific and girls specific roles which in turn lead to Mercy missing out on opportunities such as completing her education. Societal norms that only boys should be educated while girls stay at hook to take case of the home lead to Mercy being married at an early age.

    Normalization of violence by the society such as husbands should beat women, saw Mercy stay in that marriage where Clinton beat her thinking it was ok. That women should be submissive to the husbands no matter how abusive the relationship is.
