Why do women in America put up with being treated as second-class citizens? And why do so many men treat them as second-class citizens? Civilized countries do not treat their women this way! Seems America is not as great and as wonderful and as civilized as we've been led to believe.

It's even hard to write the above words "treat their women". Women are not property. Women are not a separate class of beings. Women are just human beings like everyone else and as human beings they deserve to be treated just the same as everyone is treated PERIOD!
