In the past couple of days, I was in Colorado celebrating my friend's wedding. Something that happened that I thought was interesting and surprising was how the groom had to pay the bride's brother money prior to the marriage. I wanted to respect her cultural tradition, but it was hard to accept the implications and the implicit meanings carried in that action. As a feminist, it was a challenge to honor the culture. My question becomes as feminists how do we honor other culture's traditions and values while also holding on to our beliefs in the equality of women when often there is an apparent discrepancy.
