Are there problems with ethnic or religious prejudices? Gender equality?

There's a reverse racism going on there. For example... if you go to the street market... a bread is 20 cents for a local and it is 2 dollars for you expatriate. After I learned it, my maid was all the time doing the street shopping (even though I loved the marché). - Sep 27, 2017
Women are generally treated as inferiors to men, though as expats we can largely ignore that. (ie, as foreigners the locals treat us differently regardless of gender.) - Aug 13, 2015
None that I have seen. - May 29, 2014
