Summary of Interview 090754B with Horloo
Horloo guai greatly supports democracy and she mentioned good things about it like the fact that women and children have obtained their rights, the people are communicated with on equal terms and everything is open.
She thinks if more women were elected into parliament, the people’s life standard would be enhanced. The women in politics always strive to do good things for the sake of the people, she said.
The family life has changed a lot and nowadays the cases of divorce and leaving the children without care have increased.
The mothers were taking into account by the state during socialism and they gave orders and medals and allowances. Recently with the rumour of the children’s 1.500.000 tögrög the lives of many ‘ails’ have become very hard.
Though religion has been prohibited, the majority of the ‘ails’ have kept their Buddhist relics inside the chests. Later in the 1990s with the coming of democracy religion spread freely.
