You are wrong my friend, it is not Islam that oppresses women, as Islam states that everyone is equal, regardless of race of sex.
Unfortunately, it's really culture that oppresses women, kinda like how for every 71 cents a woman makes, a man earns a dollar. That happens around the Unites states, so does that mean the US hates women? No, because there are more people that do treat women as equals.
Problem here: Muslims who do it (oppress women) aren't doing it out of religion, they do it as how they were taught by culture, as every culture has it's faults/ideas. Are there many cases around the WORLD about a man killing a woman, a husband murdering their wife, ex-boyfriend/lover out for revenge. Are all those murderers muslim? I highly doubt it. We all came from the cultural idea, Man supplies food , Woman stays home. If you say Islam is guilty for a few cases of it happening, then the entire world should just rot with all its evil.
Islam is only labeled sexist as the media tends to put more emphasis whenever it is a "Muslim" man that does it. I put Muslim in quotes as you don't have to practice Islam to be considered as a Muslim.
A verse I would like to quote from the Quran, " For Muslim men and women, for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in charity, for men and women who fast and deny themselves, for men and women who guard their chastity, for men and women who engage in Allah's praise, for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and a great reward."
I thought this would be a nice example of how Islam is equal between both genders, as both men and women will get the same reward from God for their actions.
