If you've ever wondered how women are treated in a "moderate" Muslim country like Egypt, this video will give you the answer.
On the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day, it was clear that gender equality still has a long way to go in Egypt, as a "million woman march" attracted only a few hundred people, most of them were actually men who took to the street to attack the women who dared to protest for equal rights and freedom.
In most Islamic countries there are no laws protecting women's rights, or prohibiting child marriage.
Under Sharia law a woman is considered half of a man, because the Qur'an says she has only half of a brain.
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
Sharia laws permits child marriage, forced marriage, child brides, polygamy, FGM, acid attacks, honor killings, flogging, beheading and stoning.
