Religious leaders should campaign and speak openly on issues that marginalize women which are promoting unjust inheritance. These traditions include women being raped and girls suffering sexual violations from their teachers. The faiths of Abraham allowed slavery as well as prophet Mohamed owned slaves. Other high people in religion such as St. Paul allowed the practice of slavery. There are some church leaders who fought without fear to remove the injustices that were directed towards women.
It is quite unfortunate that religions consider women as inferior beings in the eyes of the lords. For instance, in the New Testament St Paul states those women should be silent, (Husbands & Larsen, Pp 89, 2007)1. Deuteronomy declares that women should bleed at their weeding night and if not so they are stoned to death by the society. Some accepted Jews prayers are heard thanking God for not creating them as women.
Many warlords in Congo have oppressed women by violating them sexually. Some warlords in Congo call themselves pastors yet they rape women and small girls mercilessly. Another form of oppression is witnessed in Indian where brides are burned as a sign of Indian ritual (Husbands & Larsen, Pp 75, 2007)2. Religion has continued to oppress women especially in Islamic religion where girls are burned with acid if they go to school. It is quite unfortunate that religion has not changed injustices like underpaying women in their work, and treating women as second class human beings instead they have helped shape these injustices. Most of the religions have prevented women in taking equal responsibilities in religion matters and this has made their violations to be justified.
It is quite unfortunate that religions consider women as inferior beings in the eyes of the lords. This has justified men to batter their wives, soldiers
