This is one of the most controversial topics simply because people judge an entire religion because of a person or two.
Islam specifically points out the fact that women have (and should have) many rights. I honestly dont know where you guys got the idea that they dont have freedom. Oh, wait. I actually do.
Is it because the only muslim women you've seen or heard of live in Saudi Arabia and Iran? okay, well, I'm a muslim girl and i totally agree with the fact that there are some countries who dont give women their freedom.
Just so you know, those countries' government "created" those rules by themselves and, no, Islam does NOT say that a woman can't drive, can't walk on the streets alone without her husband, etc.
So, im just curious. Are there any other reasons that make you think so?
Please dont be rude and dont offend anyone.

Most people don't know everything about the Quaran and plus you have to take into consideration how long the Hediths are my problem with Islam is not that its more about the people in the religion than just the religion its self. Its the media for sure and lack of ignorance my problem with Muslim countries is the lack of understanding those Muslim countries have themselves a lot of Muslims I know know actually very little about Islam. No Muslim country follows Sharia law which is how the government should be in Islam, the government controls everything and brain washes their people into picking and choosing what to believe in the Quaran or hadeiths. For example your not supposed to kill someone just cause they are gay which is what Muslim countries do do in the middle east and your not supposed to kill or resort to physical violence just cause someone made fun of Mohammad which is what they do. This caused a misconception to the western culture and to Muslims themselves about Islam.0

I don't think Muslim women have no freedom. I think Muslim women from certain cultures and living in certain areas have severely curtailed freedoms.
It's like how very, very conservative Evangelical sects try to control women. I don't think God wants women to focus only on their families on have as many children as possible, but the Quiverfulls sure do. You just have to be vocal and stand up for your right to representation so the people that are wrong can't hide.3
