Women "breast ironing"... Jul 07, 2006
http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/africa/07 ... index.html

I already knew about female circumcision (better called female genital mutilation) but this was definitely news for me...

Whenever I start having faith in humanity I get to see stuff like that and just wonder how this can be allowed. The lives these women have to lead in order not to give men boners. It's always women who have to pay the price of ignorance and practices who should have never survived the end of the Dark Ages.

I am not so sure about that... It's just too easy of an answer. What is happening in the world today, the situation of women is just a result of centuries of Masculinity being a synonym of power and domination. Whether it's in the government, in the work place, in the household. This is just the way it has been for a long, long time.

It's just too easy to say that if we inverted roles right away, the world would be a better place. Sure RIGHT NOW, women are generally considered to be pacifists, their "weakness" gives the idea that all type of violence is only associated to men. But it's Power that should be analyzed. It is Power that corrupts. It is Power that make so many women live in the shadows of men. Invert the roles and we would end up with the opposite. We'd still have wars with just a different chain of command. Women giving the orders and men on the battleground.

The one thing we CAN do, is just put an end to all the ignorance and barbaric practices that are still found in the world. And introduce in society, ways of reducing and hopefully end someday the image of the woman as an inferior being.

These things always seem to happen in Africa, I wonder why? Education, or lack thereof perhaps?

I don't want to start a male vs female debate, but the history I know, Men have done more good for the world then there female counterparts and there are probab;y reasons for this. However I do fully believe there have been some great females, but the majority of history books points to man. Few examples; Jesus, Prophet Muhammad, Ghandi, Galileo, Einstein, Bill Gates the philanthropist, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King etc etc... of course there are just as many examples of evil men :-) anyhoo, my two cents

Power... Who got all privileges during all these centuries? Who got all type of education? Were women even allowed to open their mouth a few centuries ago in some countries without getting burned at the stake?

Yes, but it has always been the women who have suffered for what the MEN believe in. War is one major example. women have always suffered as a result of war.

This is still the case in some Muslim cultures, is it not? The male is still the Premo in the family.

There is no such thing as "muslim culture". You either live the life or you don't. I agree that these practices of belittling woman happen in 3rd world countries but in true Islam woman are considered very important and should be treated in that manner. It has nothing to do with being muslim, its typically comes down to how you were brought up.
