Oppressed women in muslim nations

Treated as chattel, stoned for minor crimes (or even non-crimes), often mutilated at birth.

Do we care? Should we* do anything about it? If so, what?

Muslim women in Western Europe are fighting for their identity as Muslims at the moment. Demanding the right to wear veils, have separate girls-only schools etc.

This is a multi-facetted issue.

Its not all women in all nations that are Islamic, it isn't even anything really to do with Islam but the underlying culture that was there before they ever encountered Islam.

Yeah, I didn't mean to imply all women in muslim nations were oppressed - I was asking about those women who are opporessed as a result of abuse of Shari'a Law.
