I was discussing the view of women from a biblical perspective, with a friend of mine, who has converted from islam to christianity. She was saying that although islamic leaders say they respect women etc etc, this is not the reality for most women living in this belief system. She has noticed that christianity, (using the bible), also oppresses women, although it is much more subtle in this, so as to appear less oppressive. She feels that the same attitudes are to be found in both religions.
Although she still has strong christian beliefs, she does not attend any churches, and disagrees with much of the biblical view of women.
I would be interested in the views of both non-christians and christians on this subject, for anyone that cares to respond.
