Essay on Ethnocentrism In The Stoning of Soraya Movie
Ethnocentrism is the belief that a person’s culture is superior to other cultural groups. This arises as a result of comparison of one’s own culture or ethnicity with other cultures. This may lead to misconceptions and stereotypes about other cultures. It also occurs in situations where individuals live in groups and consider their norms and cultures unique and incomprehensive to other cultures.

There may also be a fear of associating with such a culture due to the belief that men are violent and insensitive.
