Here are more information on how should be the treatment of women in Islam from the Quran and Hadith, to show you how we respect women, and how God treat the man and woman equally

"If any do deeds of righteousness, be they male or female, and have faith, they will enter Paradise
and not the least injustice will be done to them." (Quran 4:124)

"O you who believe! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will. Nor should you treat them with harshness, that you may take away part of the dowry you have given them - except when they have become guilty of open lewdness. On the contrary live with them on a footing of kindness and equity. If you take a dislike to them, it may be that you dislike something and God will bring about through it a great deal of good" (4:19)

"It is made lawful to you to have sexual relation with your wives on the night of the fast. They are your garments and you are their garments...."Quran 2:187)

"And when the angels said: "O Mary! God hath chosen you and purified you and chosen you above all the women of mankind" (Quran 3:42)

"O you who believe let no group scoff another, lest may the latter are better than the former. Nor let the women scoff at other women lest may the latter are better than the former, nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames, How bad is it to insult one's brother after having faith. And whoever does not repent, then such are indeed the wrong-doers."

Allah's Messenger (PBUH) said, "When a woman observes the five times of prayer, fasts during Ramadan, preserves her chastity and obeys her husband, she may enter by any of the gates of Paradise she wishes."

The Prophet (PBUH said, "Paradise lies at the feet of your mothers."
