Women's Rights: 18 of Bottom 20 Nations Are Majority-Muslim

An in-depth 2014 analysis of all the world's nations with respect to a whole range of women's rights resulted in the ranking below. The report itself did not even mention religion, but one can easily check for oneself: the bottom twenty nations in the report include eighteen that are Muslim-majority.  That dire situation for women arises from the teachings of Muhammad, as one can see in several other posts at Quoting Islam (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here).
