WHAT A JOKE AND SAD STORY OF HUMILIATION OF POOR WOMEN. HOW JORDAN AFFORD TO HOST AND FEED REFUGEES AND AT THE SAME TIME LOCK UP THEIR POOR AND MISERABLE WOMEN FOR SOMETHING THAT NO INTERNATIONAL LAWS CAN PERMIT ANY WHERE ON EARTH?. WE ARE NOW IN THE ERA OF MORNERNIZATION, CIVILIZATION AND NOT TWO STEEPS FORWARD AND TEN BACKWARDS. IN FACT, THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY NOT NOT TO READ OR HEAR THIS NEWS BECAUSE IT IS VERY SHAMEFUL.
