    There are brutal gang rapes and murders of women (and some men) in the third world every day that are never even reported, let alone make the news. That kind of stuff happens maybe once every year in the UK, so next time you find yourself cursing the supposed 'patriarchy' and 'white males' for running the country, have another think and be thankful.

    In terms of the most patriarchal country, Islam is pretty synonymous with male control.

    I doubt anyone believes that, but hopefully no-one is ignorant enough to use the worst regimes and societies in the world in terms of the lives of women as a benchmark against which to just Western societies
    That would be bad, but it would be even worse if they thought that Western society isn't an incredible accomplishment of liberalism.

    Look up 'feminist attacks on churches' or something. One example (archbishop):



    ...can't imagine them doing this to an Imam.
    They're fighting homophobia here? That's not even to do with feminism

    What does that picture show? I see no problem. Don't ask stupid questions please.

    It's a feminist group. They are closely linked with fighting homophobia as well. Either way, whether gay rights, or women's rights, they wouldn't try that on a mosque.

    There are plenty of attacks that occur on mosques anyway, so no need to feel as if they are missing out

    But it's who is doing them which is important in the context he is speaking of.

    Any country that practises FGM is a serious contender.
    Some countries do it cause of culture and the idea that a women without a clit is pure.

    Of highly developed countries, it would have to be Japan, with South Korea, Russia, Italy close behind (in some order)

    I don't know much about less developed countries, but I imagine the worst would be an Islamic African or Middle Eastern country (if we class Islamic State as a state, then the answer would almost certainly be that)
    Russia is not bad at all. There are plenty of women in powerful positions in Russia. It was forced in to Russian culture because most of their men died in the war.

    OP just wants to fling mud at Islam and feminism in one place. He couldn't even be bothered to type out an opening post.
    So you think that Muslim countries have the worst patriarchies?
