Apologetic Feminists, what to do with people whitewashing religion?

Hi everyone,
I came across this post
While I appreciate what this women is doing but she is defending religion while trying to fight patriarchy
Maybe women should stand up to the very patriarchal religion itself.
Please share your thoughts regarding this

Any idea of the punishments for women standing up against religions in some of these particular states???

Here's a clue, they don't throw fluffy kittens at them until they cry with joy.

In India women stand up against Hinduism patriarchy (Brahamanical Patriarchy to be specific)
They even burn an outdated scripture Manusmriti every year on 25th December
Despite the fact that we are a hindu majority country
Whats stopping muslim women to stand-up against Islamic Patriarchy when the law is with them ?

Chapter 4, Verse 34.

Chapter 4, Verse 34.
Sahih International: Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.

It seems that people who speak up against organized religion don't fare well in India.

@nyarlathotep Na na, we speak

@nyarlathotep Na na, we speak everyday against hindu organized religion in India everyday
We speak against the mob lynchings by RSS goons(a hindu fascist force in India) everyday
We mock our Prime Minister everyday(which should be allowed in a fair democracy)
But dare we speak against Islam, we are declared Islamaphobic by the very liberals and leftist who were our allies in speaking against Hindu religion.

Wow, what a pamphlet.

Wow, what a pamphlet.

NonApologeticIn... this woman is trying to weave a path towards female quality, but she is VERY aware that any negative references to religion will produce a powerful (possibly fatal) backlash.

I don't know if she is politically astute, or a stooge set up to protect religion. Because the secondary message from that pamphlet is "if you think religion is a problem with equality, you do not understand the holy books, go back and read them". And be it Muslim, christian, or jehovah's witnesses, they constantly tell skeptics, you must read our holy book to understand.

Of course religion makes females second class citizens, it is practiced in all religions I am aware of. And to truly tackle women's inequality one must also point out the role religion plays in it.
