In response to David Forsmark’s special Mother’s Day post on women in Judeo-Christian scripture, commenter 9-11 Infidel reminds us what the Qur’an tells Muslims about women:

And the Quranic text on women? It would be what? Oh that’s right. Here it is lest we forget:

Women are property in Islam:” Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” (2:223)
It rules that a son’s inheritance should be twice the size of that of a daughter: “Allah (thus) directs you as regards your children’s (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females” (4:11).
Worst of all, the Qur’an tells husbands to beat their disobedient wives: “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them” (4:34).
Try and juxtapose those quotes with Ephesians 5:25 or Proverbs 31.
