(Duty, Honor, Country! What else needs said?)
The womens rights movement began during the Middle Ages in this region, when pioneers worked to improve the status of women in Islamic nations during early Islamic reforms.
They didn't get very far. The really sad thing is that the treatment of women under Islam *is* an improvement over their treatment under Arabian paganism, but a massive step backwards from their treatment under Orthodox Christianity as practiced in the Eastern Roman Empire. I'm not sure whether it's better or worse than under Zoarastrianism--I suspect it's worse.

But WAIT! Haven’t I had libs tell me for YEARS that Saddam treated women equally in Iraq and Iraq was the only country that women were not treated like cattle? Maybe I misunderstood.

When we get more rights, we will build a better city and country than we have today. They just have to give us a chance, she said.
Sadly, about the only chance they'll be getting is a 3 second running head start before the stones start flying.
