The one aspect of Islam that makes it unpalatable to modern western
civilization is their treatment of women. According to the Quran,
their Holy Scriptures of Divine Origin, a woman is half of a man.
Islam seems to think that every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife or a concubine.
It does seem absolutely ridiculous that people should choose to go around looking like letter boxes.
We see pictures or watch videos of women covered in burqas or veils in Muslim countries and find them repugnant. The burqa is the Islamic Cloak of Death.
We read about how women are treated in Muslim countries and are horrified.
The hijab is merely a mechanism and a symbol of subjugation of women and of religion controlling people's lives.

Egyptian leader Gamal Abdel Nasser laughing at the Muslim Brotherhood in 1958 for suggesting that women should be required to wear the hijab and that Islamic law should be enforced across the country.
In the year '53 we really wanted to compromise with the Muslim Brotherwood if they were willing to be reasonable. And I met the head of the Muslim Brotherhood and he sat with me and made his resquests.
What did he request ? The first thing he asked for was to make wearing a hijab mandatory in Egypt and demand that every woman walking in the street wear a tarha (scarf). Every woman walking!
[Someone from the crowd shouts 'Let him wear it!' the crowd applauds and laughs]
If I make that a law, they will say that we have returned to the days of Al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah who forbade people from walking at day and only allowed walking at night. And my opinion is that every person in his own house to decide for himself the rules and he replied
'No, as a leader, you are responsible'. I told him, 'Sir, you have a daughter in the School of Medicine and she's not wearing a tarha'. [crowd laughing] 'Why didn't you make her wear a tarha? [crowd applause] If you are unable to make one girl - who is your daughter - wear the tarha, you want me to put a tarha on 10 million women? Myself?
I'm a woman who studied Islam in school for 12 years and this is how Islam is really treating women
I was born in a very Islamic conservative country and its education system requires you to learn 4 religious subjects (quran, hadiths, fiqh, tawhid) per term and 2 other religious subjects(tafseer and tajweed) once per school. I basically studied Islam for 12 years and learned all of its sides. I wanted to write this post because I got tired of all these fake apologists trying to deny our struggles and justify their unfair religion.
First, there's something called Aqiqah in Islam and it's a sacrifice of an animal to celebrate child birth. When the baby is male they sacrifice two animals and when it's female it's just one.
A woman body is Awra (awra means something forbidden to look at in Islam and in Arabic it means a flaw or demerit) so she is forced to cover up.
Women's voices are considered awra which means no man (other than her family and uncles) should hear it unnecessarily.
The wife cannot leave her house without her husband's agreement.
If a man smelled a woman's perfume she is as guilty as a zaniah (woman who had premarital sex).
In a Sahih Hadith Mohammad said that women are the majority of the people whom are going to hell.
In another Sahih Hadith Mohammad said that women are incomplete in both religion and mind.
Beating wives is allowed in Islam if they're not "obeying" their husbands.
A woman obeying her husband is a part (or way) of obeying Allah. Obeying husband is considered more important than obeying her parents in Islam.
A woman can't divorce her husband but he can divorce her even if he doesn't have a vaild reason.
A woman cannot object against her husband marrying another wife.
A man should give an amount of money to his future wife which is considered a justification for all the inequality above (seems like buying a slave me thinks).
Women in Islam can't lead people. There is a Sahih Hadiths that says: a nation would never succeed if a woman led them.
A woman cannot have custody of her kids if she married another man.
marital rape is allowed. If a woman refused to have sex with her husband the angels will curse her until the sun goes up.
Men can marry kids literally but can't have sex with them before they got their period, however men are still allowed to have sexual activities other than penetration with their child wives. Mohammad married Aisha when she was 6. He couldn't have sex with her because of her young age so he rubbed his penis between her thighs. (And this is in Al-Bukhary so it's considered 100% true)
Women inheritance is half their brothers'.
Women testimony is half men's testimony.
Women can't be judges.
Woman's kids cannot have her surname
Women cannot marry non-muslim men, however men can marry non-muslim women.
There is a Sahih hadith that says: women come in devil shape and go in devil shape. Its explanation is women seems like devils because they're "seductive" to men so they shouldn't walk between men unless it's necessary. (Victim blaming at its finest)
Men will have plenty of virgin good looking women in Heaven. Women will have none, instead they will have their husbands in heaven.
Women cannot be guardians of themselves in Islam as there is an ayah that says: Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.
And I copied all of this fucking long Ayah because it shows you how Allah (Mohammad in disguise to be accurate) views women. I seriously get furious each time I see muslims men or women (especially the ones who live in non Islamic countries) denying or justifying women's treatment in Islam. Leftists too should stop defending Islam if they want equality to happen and seriously they should stop defending hijabs because the meaning behind it is completely misogynist and usually is forced by family. "Dyooth" is a word in Islam that means "the man who has no jealousy of his family's women" and dyooths won't go to heaven. That word is used to shame the man who doesn't control what his wife or sisters wear or who are they sleeping with or even talking to. That's why honor killing is a thing in muslim countries.
