Speaking of not using the intelligence of your population, how about the
Muslims, who deny so many roles to their women? As we all know, in the
good ol USA we have used women for a long time. Even the grossly underpaid
secretaries functioned more as office managers and many offices could not
run without them.
I have read that the backwardness of Muslim society can be attributed to in
part by the lack of inclusion of women in their society. I just have to
wonder if they are basically afraid of women. Afraid that some women will
be better than the men are. I don't know much about Muslims, so maybe
another member can fill us in here. I don't want to make any prejudicial
statements. Maybe they are limited by what the Koran says. bill w
