    The report you point out is only one example of very many – see Human Rights Watch. I’ve often said that many are complacent about women’s rights in this country, assuming the battle is won, but they seldom consider the situation for the vast majority of women elsewhere, particularly in developing countries where male religious leaders and religious zealots persecute women. If they weren’t necessary as breeding machines, women would have eliminated in many places.
