Asma al-Mohattwari-almotamar.net - In Yemeni society, a girl considers her father to be a source of safety and security that can protect her from cruelty and injustice in the world around her. She always holds her fatherís hands, because she feels their love and tenderness. But Samerís father let his daughterís feelings down; he shattered the meaning of fatherhood and violated the right of childhood.
Samerís suffering started when her father divorced her mother, leaving behind her three sons and one year-old daughter, Semar. The mother tried to take Samer, but her husband refused. The village the mother lives in gave the father the right of custody. The mother was forced to marry again, and stopped asking about her children because she was busy with her new life.
