There are legislative rights {rights written on the books} and there are active rights {the rights that are practiced daily within society}. Islamic rule offers women a great deal of legislative rights but Muslim majority society offer women very little active rights and often times they supersede Islamic rulings that favor the woman and instead place cultural specific rulings because that's how their forefathers did things and God forbid they actually obey God and his teachings. I don't blame non-Muslims who look to Muslim countries and come back with the conclusion that Islam is unfair towards women. There needs to be a great deal of educating going around among men and women to bring about an end to this cycle of oppression.

In many cases, both the western world and the islamic world, seem backwards and confused.
But that is just my opinion.
Waiting an eternity for an apology from one who never apologizes but always demands one.
