One of the reasons that most Islamic societies are backward and will remain backward for the foreseeable future is the way that they treat women.

Sure, you can argue that things aren’t perfect for women in the Western world. But, if you compare the treatment of women in a country like say the United States to other real countries, as opposed to some perfect ideal that has never existed and never will, you’ll find that women do extremely well in this country. In fact, in many respects, you could make a fair argument that they get preferential treatment to men.

Additionally, some people may point out that many issues with the way women are treated in Muslim nations have more to do with culture than religion. Certainly, culture can be a factor. Women usually don’t fare well under the sort of tribalism you see in places like Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia. Moreover, certain practices like the burka or clitorectomies are more traditional than Islamic. Yet, when you look at the actual numbers, it becomes impossible to deny that there is a very strong correlation between the poor treatment of women and Islam:

The World Economic Forum last week distributed its annual Global Gender Gap Report, a review of how 134 countries have succeeded in closing gaps between women and men in four areas economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, political empowerment and health and survival.

While some non-Muslim countries do poorly, the vast majority of the worst-scoring countries are Islamic, most of them Arab states.
