Yes, it has gotten worse since immigration from Muslim lands, especially, in Scandinavia.

Wow Marie-Luise...

Either you're really that oblivious, or you didn't read the article-

A young woman was stoned to death for being raped in compliance with Sharia Law.
In some Islamic countries are denied the right to vote.

In a new Al-Quada controlled area women can not leave the house without a male escort.

In KSA women can not drive and are regularity harassed by the so-called morality police.

Obviously total equality does not exist for women in the West but we are centuries ahead of Islamic countries.

"... women are mistreated across the globe, across cultures, races, and religions at unfortunately high and gross levels," but only islam rewards those who mistreat them!

After all, these men are only obeying the qu'ran.

WTF? Proof from the Qur'an?
The Quran only proves that some Arab could write.

Well on the other hand, I understand Mo (Place Bomb Upon Him) got a Christian to write it.

The problem with the article is that if fails to point out that Muslim countries have systemic policies that promote harassment of women because they classify women as third class citizens. The second class citizens are the domesticated animals.

However, the west has laws and a judiciary that can be used to protect women from sexual harassment and otherwise award damages related to sexual harassment, particularly in the United States. So, while harassment of women does obviously exist in the west it remains that Muslim countries accept or ignore sexual harassment of women and even rape by failing to legally protect women and always assuming women are at fault.

So the article is just another red herring and is a failed attempt to put Islamic oppression and harassment of women on equal footing with sexual harassment in the west.

@ Devon

Well.. you pretend don't see on #3. I provide link.

But i add more

Quran

4:34 Husbands should take full care of their wives, with [the bounties] God has given to some more than others and with what they spend out of their own money. Righteous wives are devout and guard what God would have them guard in the husbands’ absence. If you fear high-handedness from your wives, remind them [of the teaching of God], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them. If they obey you, you have no right to act against them. God is most high and great.

Funny u say this...I myself was raised on islam and from my upbringing men are only punished for abusing, mistreating, or harrasing women in any way possible...people need to realize that some bad seeds doesnt make the whole bunch...just like how the klu klux klan call themselves the CHRISTIAN knights, but I dont think all christians follow the kkk belief system,...

As if you didn't already know.

"Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in their sleeping places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.(Shakir's version of the Koran, Quran, 4:34)

BTW, if step #3, beating your wife, doesn't work, what other "ways" can the muslim husband use against them?

Funny, but a muslim father who kills his daughter for "dishonoring" their family is considered to be a hero by his islamic peers.

Sorry dear, cannot believe you as long as males can kill you under Sharia if you offend them or their "honor". Just like I cannot believe the little girls who repeated swear they love their hijab. If their lives were not dependent on men who could kill them with impunity and even the blessing of their Imam, I'd be more likely to believe them.

Some slaves love their masters too; doesn't make slavery right.

islamic views on women

• The woman who dies and with whom the husband is satisfied will go to paradise.

• A wife should never refuse herself to her husband even if it is on the saddle of a camel.

• Hellfire appeared to me in a dream and I noticed that it was above all peopled with women who had been ungrateful. "Was it toward God that they were ungrateful?" They had not shown any gratitude toward their husbands for all they had received from them. Even when all your life you have showered a woman with your largesse she will still find something petty to reproach you with one day, saying, "You have never done anything for me."

• If anything presages a bad omen it is: a house, a woman, a horse.

• Never will a people know success if they confide their affairs to a woman.

al-Ghazali (1058-1111), greatest islamic scholar of their "golden age" wrote below

She should stay at home and get on with her spinning, she should not go out often, she must not be well-informed, nor must she be communicative with her neighbours and only visit them when absolutely necessary; she should take care of her husband and respect him in his presence and his absence and seek to satisfy him in everything; she must not cheat on him nor extort money from him; she must not leave her house without his permission and if given his permission she must leave surreptitiously. She should put on old clothes and take deserted streets and alleys, avoid markets, and make sure that a stranger does not hear her voice or recognize her; she must not speak to a friend of her husband even in need.... Her sole worry should be her virtue, her home as well as her prayers and her fast. If a friend of her husband calls when the latter is absent she must not open the door nor reply to him in order to safeguard her and her husband's honour. She should accept what her husband gives her as sufficient sexual needs at any moment.... She should be clean and ready to satisfy her husband's sexual needs at any moment.

A distinction without a difference. Islam is Tribal, Tribes follow Islam. It has been this way for a thousand years and the differentiation between the two is of value only to the apologists who would pretend the violent mysogyny of monotheism is relegated to the past.
