Islam on Women

Ian Clarey @ notes an article on Top Ten Rules In The Quran That Oppress and Insult Women by James Arlandson. The article lists details including support from the Quran.

10. A husband has sex with his wife, as a plow goes into a dirt field.

9. Husbands are a degree above their wives.

8. A male gets a double share of the inheritance over that of a female.

7. A woman’s testimony counts half of a man’s testimony.

6. A wife may remarry her ex-husband if and only if she marries another man, they have sex, and then this second man divorces her.

5. Slave-girls are sexual property for their male owners.

4. A man may be polygamous with up to four wives.

3. A Muslim polygamist may simply get rid of one of his undesirable wives.

2. Husbands may hit their wives even if the husbands merely fear highhandedness in their wives (quite apart from whether they actually are highhanded—as if domestic violence in any form is acceptable).

1. Mature men are allowed to marry prepubescent girls.
