Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

What you are describing is a common phenomenon. This comes from two factors, the social attitude and laws of the land and its actual implementation. Islamic countries have laws that are very favourable to the MALE. Also many of the judges seem to be biased ( See the recent case in Iran where a teenager was hanged for fighting off a rape attempt).

Also islam as a religion treats women like sex toys (dont get angry with me, you know what I am talking of ) and that is the prevalent attitude in any islamic society. Crimes against women happen in US and Europe too, but the socio-legal structure is very supportive of the victim. They can hope for protection and justice in the West.

The so called liberated Muslim woman is also at fault. There are muslim citizens in UK who have multiple educated wives, who beat and abuse their wives. Polygamy and wife beating is illegal in UK but these women put up with it and men use quotes from koran to justify it. You stick to what you know is wrong, you are to blame.
