Well you seem to forget Mohammed raped female slaves, had sex with female children and endorsed FGM

Muslim women can own property, that is true, but they do not have control of that property, the men have control, whether they be her father, husband or guardian.

The Muslim concept of equality is what the flat earth theory is to geography.

Muslim women do not, nor never have had equal rights to Muslim men.

Muslim women can only marry Muslim Men, Muslim men can marry non muslims.

Muslim men in general, have great difficulty looking upon women as anything more than an object to be controlled.

Muslim men can have sex with female slaves, muslim women cannot have sex with male slaves.

Muslim women's testimony is only worth 1/2 of that of a man.

Muslim men can divorce a muslim women with a simple sentence, a Muslim woman has to get permission form another muslim man to divorce.

Muslim women 1400 years ago were treated poorly relative to the western world, Muslim women now are treated relatively poorly compared to the women of the western world now.

Just ask a Saudi woman how equal she feels?

Selective facts posted by you do not hide the truth. Mohammed was sexist. Mohammed as an individual, is responsible for and has perpetuated more pain of women, than any man that has ever lived and continues to do so. That is a fact that is universally applicable.
