Women are highly respected in Quran and Hadeeths and in the practical life of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS). The great status of Fatima (AS) , Maryam ( Mary) ( AS), Khadija (AS) and Asiya, in Quran and Hadeeths is enough to show the real status of pious women in Islam.
Some Muslims behave according to ignorant culture away from the teachings of Islam. This is the reason why some women suffer in Muslim countries. It is because of ignoring and deviation from the real teachings of Islam.
