The Quran is very progressive towards women in Islam. It was the first religious scripture that introduced the right to vote, the right inherit, choose who to marry and pursue to divorce as well as the rights of the mother and the rights of the daughter. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has been accused of being a feminist because of what he pushed for women. There are cultures that are very regressive. This is not to do with Islam but the economic and social situations of the country and not Islam.
