    Why has it been so difficult for so many people to accord women the same rights as men? Religions in general have been stupid about this issue, pretending there are good reasons why women should have lesser rights than men.

    There's a great change all over the world, in some places more than others, but slower or faster women are more and more being recognized as being equal with equal rights.

    Personally I'm not interested in debating which religion or nation is worse but in looking for signs of progress and welcoming them.

    Personally I think we have to look beyond both the Bible and the Quran to arrive at modern women’s rights

    Why should the thoughts and attitudes of ancient primitives have any baring on the modern world?

    The video makes a good point, while Islam may be considered backwards for today's time with regards rights for women, compared to the Bible, the Koran was ahead of its time in offering more rights to women than previous times, this is not to be taken lightly, but thinking that we cannot go beyond the rights women had in 650AD is a bit ridiculous.
