Why do Muslim women have no respect for themselves


Now, I'm positive I will receive angry comments from Muslim men - & Muslim women in response to this question. Most likely replying they do have respect for themselves. I mean no disrespect, but to a man raised in a society where women have so many more rights than traditional Muslim women, I do not see Muslim women as having respect for themselves. And frankly, I do not want my daughters to marry in to subjugation to a man. A partner, yes. A subordinate, no. So please do not respond angrily. Calmly & politely tell me why I am wrong - or if right, answer the question as posed.

    Thank you JThomp42. I mean no ill will or disrespect toward anyone w/my question as u understand. It does seem an uphill battle for respect 4 some groups in this world; women being probably the no.1 disrespected historically.

    U make valid pts.! Not the least there r many western women who whore themselves in many ways disrespectfully. & yes, women world-wide still lack respect more than any other group. But choice & opportunity is a start; Muslim's -no choice.

    Question: If a Muslim woman & her Muslim husband disagree, who wins? Is not respect give & take. Win & lose. Give in & don't give in. One can be raised in a culture of no respect based on sex. Does that make it something to be proud

    fpherj48, not only some Muslim, there are women of many religious demonimations who DON'T respect themselves.Such women are just mere automatons, not choosing to be accountable for their particular lives. Some Christian women are FAR WORSE!

    No push-ups 4 my daughters.lol. It is a matter of choice. Women historically still r most disrespected. But Muslims have no choice. Bodies born with male genitalia can rule & end their lives. My daughters can divorce abuse; it's easier 4 them.

    Correction, computer glitch-the statement should read as follows:Although they are in their respective religions, they elect NOT to permit their religion to rule and determine their lives, they have minds of their own.

    I understand your pt. & believe it valid & yes "choices" r made as well as forced upon us. I'm not stating "right" or "wrong." But historically -men have forced their will & control upon women. Respect demands equal value.
