I am a woman in the West Claire. I will tell you that Women are leading in the conversions to Islam in the West. Interesting?

Woman to Woman, I will tell you that women are not respected in this country. The body of a woman is used to sell everything form chewing to cigarettes. She is looked as a sexual object who's worth relies on her ability to incite. In order to be considered attractive she must display herself like in a store window. I will tell you what a bad deal feminists has made!

Traditionally, women in this country cared for the house, their children. Children were actually raised by their parents rather than daycare facilities where one caretaker would be in charge of 12 children or more! Imagine the psychological affects of such a distant primary experience. This is why so many women are trying to return to the home.

In addition, has things really changed in regards to traditional roles in the household. Women in this country are still the primary caregivers of their children! They still cook, clean. Ect. So what we have then is more responsibility for the woman and less responsibility for the man! He has help in paying the bills, but how much help do women have? What an exchange! All at the cost of the children.

Women are still discriminated against and sexually harassed in the work place. A woman is raped every 2 min in this country. 15 out of 16 rapist go free! What exactly are you talking about? The right to be naked? Why not, men love it!! The right to abortion? Men love that too! The right to work? Why not, it means less responsibility for the man! How many women wished they could stay home with their families instead of working? The right to vote? Who are the candidates, men. How hard is it for women to enter politics? Pakistan has been far ahead in this area, having a woman president at one point in time.

What have I left out? Abusive relationships , DIVORCE, This is an ultimate masculinist society. The freedom of the woman is an illusion.
