true, lots of people think that women are mistreated but in fact we are not! if a woman is good on earth and covers herself from "strangers" then in the afterlife they will be treated to things they would never have imagined (in a good way). also the reason women are covered is because they don't need to show their body off to other people. it is what God gave them to live with and its not a model that they should show off to the world. women that are covered are usually thought of either modest, shy or mistreated. well i think that people should get to know the muslim religion better (even if they don't want to convert or anything like that) and they will find out how it really works..
