    So you think that Muslim countries have the worst patriarchies?
    What, because all Muslim countries are the same?

    Some of the countries most oppresive to women are Muslim-majority countries. Some Christian-majority countries are also pretty horrific to women. I'm not trying to play down links between regimes based on extremist interpretations of Islam and the oppression of women, just that it would be highly misleading to talk about "Muslim countries" as if they are al the same.

    The UK duh, everyday sexism here.
    Saudi Arabia probably

    The Muslim ones.
