    Just wow Intense and hard to read as it left me extremely angry Covered Christian Judaism Muslim and Hindu fundamentalism and the treatment of women and then shifted into specific locations like Afghanistan Each chapter was written by different women and their views of how backassward's religion takes women to as a way to save itself The men don't have to be treated this way but the women get screwed over It also covered how women are working to make changes within the strictures they are forced to deal withHighly recommended
