Like, even in America, if most men wanted women to live like women in Saudi Arabia, what could women do to stop it?

No matter how much women may not want to admit it, the fact is, whether women have any "rights" or not has always, and will always be dependant on how men feel about it. Kind of like in Aladdin where Jafar is an all-powerful sorcerer, but as Aladdin states, the Genie will always have the power to take it away.
and YOU do realize that without women, there wouldn't be any humans at all, right?

Do you think he is the only man who has cheated on his pregnant wife?
I'm not sure why I should be peeved about other peoples marital infidelity.

Here's a question: Take the Amish for example, they live very simple yet hard lives where gender roles are strictly enforced for men and women, yet in order to prosper as they do, do you honestly think they could prosper just as much were they to completely reverse the gender roles? Say all the Amish men took care of the kids and did all the cooking and cleaning, while all the Amish women did the barn raising and all of the physically demanding tasks.

When has anyone ever said that all women are strong and independent? It's a goal, not a description of American society. Especially not prior to 1920.

Many of today's women believe that the man is head of the household because the BIBLE told them so.

Time was in France and Louisiana when a woman's father died, her share of the inheritance went to her husband. IIRC, it was in the 1960's that an employed American women could not get a mortgage without a male co signer. When credit cards first came out, they were in the husbands name even if the wife had a job.

And don't forget, when reading about the admonition against gays in Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis, when the townsmen came to Lot's house to get the strangers for sex, Lot gave them his daughters.
Which version of the Bible is this in?
