Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: Muslim women are respected.......

I disagree. I think Jo Wa's 'way of thinking', that Muslim men should be the head of household, that they decide what's best for the wife and family, is not endangering women - as long as the man has common sense. It would not do any good if the man were a fool, as no wife would benefit from following a fool. There are women out there that DO NOT need the guidance of a man, and there are others that DO.

Sometimes men can be protectors.
