Womens rights:

Womens rights A litany of violations against women continue to be the norm, rather than the exception, and feminist, gender and human rights activists have made little strides in digging out the root of the problem - the unequal power relations between women and men.

South Korea womans rights:

South Korea womans rights For over five centuries, woman had no property rights, and had to depend financially on her father before marriage, her husband after marriage and her eldest son in the event of her husband's death. Primogeniture meant women had no inheritance rights, married women being considered 'outsiders' in their natal homes. In the 20th century, Korea went through great changes from a hermit kingdom to a war-torn impoverished country struggling to survive in the bewildering modern world, finally emerging as a newly industrialized nation towards the end of the 1970s. The economic plight and/or loss of significant men in their lives often meant that women had to take on the financial burden themselves. Many succeeded in not only earning a living for their families, but accumulating considerable fortunes. Nevertheless, the women's social status did not improve drastically, the long-prevailing ideology of 'namjon yobi


Biblical In many Muslim countries across Asia and into the Middle East and Africa, the teaching that women are lower than men because Eve was made from Adam's rib--and because Eve caused the Fall--has more followers than in the Christian West. Even many well-educated women accept this belief as something God-ordained. Some of the word is takin out of context such as.. Colossians 3:18 Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord

Muslim societies:

Muslim societies In Pakistan, one of the largest Muslim countries, for instance, a woman may still be denied a male partner by being "married off" to the Islamic holy book, or Qur'an. In this enforced celibacy, prevalent in the patriarchal countryside, the main aim is to prevent the division of land and deprive a woman of her share of her dead father's property. Burdens galore beset women in Muslim societies. They include: * Giving the right to polygamy to the husband but not the wife. * Mandating that women's testimony in a court of law carries far less weight than men's. * According women a lesser share of an inheritance than male offspring. * Declaring that women (but not men) must drape themselves from head to toe in form-concealing clothing. * Not being allowed to drive a car, as occurs in Saudi Arabia.


Africa Africa still retain colonial-era laws that legally define men as head of the household.
