It’s quite awful really.
In Islam woman very powerful. We the examples have Khadijah who was the financial supporter of Islam in it’s establishments. Then we have Aisha who led wars. We have Rabbia who is a saint in Islam. We have Mary the mother of our Prophet Jesus who is the most honered among the women etc.
You’re going to be in so much trouble if our wmen here this. They will come over here and proove you so wrong.
