The writer of Hali Meidenhad ("Holy Virginity") extols a reclusive, isolated life over marriage precisely because marriage, a female secular destiny, pushes women away from channels of social power and responsibility, confining them in a social structure indifferent to their needs at best and openly, even legally, hostile to them at worst: "He chides and jaws you, and he insults you shamefully; he makes mock at you, as a lecher does his whore; he beats you and mawls you as his bought thrall and patrimonial slave" (86).
