A billion women live under the shadow of Islam today (that's almost one in eight human beings walking the planet today). And all the evidence from fourteen centuries of Islamic history and theology points to the uncomfortable fact that Islam hates women. We examine numerous texts from the Qur'an and hadiths of Sahih al-Bukhari to illustrate the thesis."
Texts quoted from the Koran: Distribution of inheritances: 4:11 and 12. Islam is the "perfect" religion for all mankind: 5:3 What to do with women "who commit unlawful sexual acts" (and those who are raped): 4:15 and 24:2 Men are superior to women: 4:34
