As someone mentioned about elders wives, ( and I will say this over and over). The women I knew that were so keen to do that rubbish were the ones who wore the trousers in the marriage . It was almost a perverse jw game to them.
You never saw the brow beaten sister, always silent, head down in shame with the black eye at the back of the hall as one that loved to get her tea towel out.
So perverse. Put a slipper on when unbelieving hubby walks in but nothing whenbyou pray. Jewish women for whom the OT was written don't show the top of their head to GOD when they pray - never mind whose present - it's about respect for GOD. Even the men wear skull caps when praying, teaching or in synagogue as it's about respect toward God.
In the middle east they have an obsession with hair ( which is why Mrs Merkel was removed from an orthodox magazine), not as the leader of europe but coz she showed her hair!....of course jw's have got that obsession a little bit, but as usual utterly confused eg arse about face and don't allow beards!!
BUT there is no doubt in mind jw women are the worst treated and culturally it's getting worse.
Even in the Koran it says women and men are EQUAL. They also can inherit property and be rulers. Jewish women have it worse but can be judges, prophetesess and rabbis.
Due to Pauls ravings Christian women are in the worst position, even though his most mysoginistic writings( Timothy etc) were actually not written by him according to the majority of academics. Even so In the NT there are female apostles ( means messenger or envoi) and diakonos - deacon - or ministerial servant. But in Watchtower as women we have only head cook and bottle washer.
