Islam tells us the following with regards to women:
1) They are deficient in intelligence.
2) You can beat your woman
3) Woman's testimony is half that of a man
4)Your wives are as a tilth unto you
5)Women are unclean because of their periods and thereby they are termed as hurt
6) Islam tells us that women cannot be leaders.
7) Islam allows men to marry 4 women but the reverse is not allowed.
8) Islam allows to rape women prisoners of war.
9) Islam suppressed women's progress. An example is : Khadija could run a business in pre islamic times however after islam came in, we hardly hear about any woman doing what Khadija managed to do.
How in the world can any sane person claim that islam was progressive towards women? I must say eSHaHeEN is really insulting all the women in the world!.
So in the Roman empire women were leaders, Romans didnt have female slaves and sex with them and didnt rape. Women were equal to men in all regards? The Christian church and Judaism are led by women?
This has nothing to do with religion but honestly Im tired of this Western feminist propaganda baloney that is trying to brainwash people into believing that women and men are completely equal in their abilities.
It seems to me that western feminism has eradicated common sense. Women as leaders? Are you serious? Just remind yourself for a moment about the women you grew up with and now tell me honestly wether any of these girls and women could possibly lead a group of people. From my experience the only women that would be able to lead a group show a very masculine personality.
