Women are not permitted to read and girls are not educated. Men fulfill specific criterion and are educated only to match what they do.This is a patriarchal autocratic dystopia. Men are given prominence to varying degrees. Women are subjugated and used merely as vessels. Lack of education keeps women ignorant and perpetually helpless.
