I never can figure out why so many women believe in reprehensible texts that advocate and specifically say they are inferior to men. It took some pretty courageous women in the last few hundred years to overcome a lot of sexist "rules/laws" that are in both the Bible and the Quran, and put equality between the sexes on the books. I'm glad the US had women like Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton who saw these ancient traditions and texts for what they really were, but while the West is well ahead of Islam as far as equality goes, we still have a long way to go too.

Don't you think that the threat of violence and unrelenting preaching in their faces from all corners keeps them in check? When push comes to shove,.. men can physically keep women down....and in some of these countries that's what they do or threaten to do if a woman questions their lot in life. While as a female, I'm happy to have been born in this country, the US has their own particular way of keeping women in check....It's called Hollywood, the media, magazines. plastic surgery, Vic toria Secret, the hypersexualization of young girls.etc....

"The US has a particular way of keeping women in check"? The fake aura of happiness that the media and entertainment industry deluges women with isn't sexist, it's an equal opportunity advertiser to men and women. I'm talking about an actual set of beliefs, a way of living and a lifetime of servitude that many religions and texts endorse. I'm not talking about something as trivial as making you feel guilty for having cellulite.... Big difference.

And what you really mean is "you're glad you're born in the country 'now'". A few decades ago you wouldn't be singing that tune smp65.

That you would compare our political system/differences with the Taliban and Fundie Muslims treatment of women shows an utter lack of disadain for women and this situation.

Try a little harder and perhaps you can be even more shallow and insensitive.

Please have some cultural and religious respect for countries where women must walk around in tent covers.

Don't try to impose your western views of equality and respect on backwards muslim countries.
