Women are not equal to men

Post by Silje on Mon Nov 24 2014, 19:04

Maybee the Egyptian military did the right thing getting rid off the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Muslim Brotherhood are in power in Turkey and they are slowly making the country more muslim. President Erdogan is a real charming guy, love his views on women and his statement that The Muslims discovered the Americas before Columbus.

Erdogan: Women Are Not Equal to Men

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan set off a new controversy on Monday, declaring that women are not equal to men and accusing feminists of not understanding the special status that Islam attributes to mothers.

Addressing a meeting in Istanbul on women and justice, Erdogan said men and women are created differently, that women cannot be expected to undertake the same work as men, and that mothers enjoy a high position that only they can reach.

"You cannot put women and men on an equal footing," Erdogan said. "It is against nature. They were created differently. Their nature is different. Their constitution is different."

Erdogan added: "Motherhood is the highest position ... You cannot explain this to feminists. They don't accept motherhood. They have no such concern."

Lawyer and women's rights activist Hulya Gulbahar said Erdogan's comments were in violation of Turkey's constitution, Turkish laws and international conventions on gender equality and didn't help efforts to stem high incidences of violence against women in Turkey.

"Such comments by state officials which disregard equality between men and women play an important role in the rise of violence against women," Gulbahar said. "Such comments aim to make women's presence in public life ? from politics to arts, from science to sports ? debatable."

Erdogan, a devout Muslim, often courts controversy with divisive public comments. He has previously angered women's groups by stating that women should bear at least three children and by attempting to outlaw abortion and adultery.

He raised eyebrows this month by declaring that Muslims had discovered the Americas before Christopher Columbus.

This pervasive attitude in many regions is disheartening. What's worse is the women who are brainwashed to believe the same and allow themselves to be abused and marginalized.

I see women as very different than men but we are definitely equal. I would say that women are better at so many more things in life than men are. Like multitasking as Joanna said! Erdagon's remarks are so inflammatory. He's not making any friends in the international arena by making some of his idiotic remarks like feminists " don't accept motherhood". And that "women should bear three children". Charlie Rose interviewed him sometime earlier this year. Found Erdagon pretty arrogant IMO,

Let's just say that I can't wait until we get our first woman President. Wink
