A similar study in 2014, conducted by the World Economic Forum, concluded that 19 of the 20 countries with the largest gender gap between men and women were Muslim-majority countries.
Are these results connected to the teachings of Islam, or are they mere coincidence? In this 8 minute video, David Wood presents three Quran verses every woman needs to know. These verses show that in order to challenge the gender gap in Muslim countries, we must all challenge the commands of Allah and Muhammad.
Full information on this video is available on Wood's Answering Islam website - a mine of information. One thing though: while Wood mentions the NY Times article concerning the number of women in Prison in Pakistan because they have been raped being as high as 50% I've seen other reports from Women's Rights and Human Rights organisations that put the figure between 2/3 and 80%. Horrifying stuff.
