No government authority can improved women's conditions. In any country, women’s condition has improved only when the women of that country struggled for it. The worst ennemy of this struggle are the religious people. Women’s condition is getting worse where religions are influent. Jews, Muslims and Christians all agree on that point : keep women under men’s authority. Whenever they can, they keep them away from education and from professional activity to make sure they remain dependent on men for a living. When the religious are very liberal, they tolerate nurses, school teachers, secretaries and any jobs that has to do with care. This is why religious feminism is a nice illusion.
