Thank you for such a clarifying article - absolutely spot on about how patriachal /fundamental interpretations, of religions all define women as helpmates to their husband.

In Islam, the only thing women need to do, is to 'please her husband' - that guarantees her entry into heaven! So no need to explore the world, learn to read or anything useless like that - just be compliant and say 'yes yes yes' to everything he wants, when he wants it. Little wonder I never imagined myself getting married! Should the good marrried woman, refuse her husband sexual relations, then angels will come and curse her all night.

Hmmm... Such a self-serving ideology, I always wondered why the 'Divine' that men conjured up, was all about them having their needs met!!!
