My main outlet for socialization was a weekly English club I hosted, and wandering around the market chatting with various vendors and co-workers I’d come to recognize — all but one of whom was a woman.For two years, I lived in Madagascar as a Peace Corps volunteer.It’s hard to sum up the experience in a succinct, one sentence answer, but for anyone who asks: “It was both fantastic and really, really, tough.” Most people get the obvious challenges — Malagasy work ethic was more laid-back than in America and sometimes presented problems.We lived in a developing country so we didn’t have access to many modern amenities.I had a pit latrine and no running water in my house. When I think back on the “lowest lows” and most challenging points of my service, they have little to do with the standards of living or working in a foreign culture and language.I taught classes of 50 students using nothing more than a chalkboard. The biggest challenge was dealing with sexual harassment on a daily basis and having to give up certain liberties and freedoms since, in the conservative highlands of Madagascar, had to to meet the expectations my host culture had for women.

Male volunteers, on the other hand, didn’t give up as much in this sense.

I hated it but understood that respecting the cultural expectations my town had for women was extremely important for the success of my work, the respect I received as a teacher at the local middle school, and for building a healthy relationship with my community.

So, like all other women, I stayed at home after dark.

Worse though, all of this made me feel lonely, frustrated, and eventually led me to develop a deep suspicion towards men that I still haven’t fully shed since leaving in September 2013.

That is, until I started dating another volunteer in a town four hours away towards the end of my service.

All of the sudden, those social expectations no longer applied to me.
