Is anti-female sentiment a product of organized religion?

Secular societies, as a general rule, do not oppress women. At least, they don't oppress women to a greater extent than they oppress men. People are still locked into gender roles in any society to some degree, but doesn't it seem it's the societies under the hold of organized religions that are especially anti-woman?

Take say the Islamic countries, or India, as opposed to Asia or the secular West, which are far more egalitarian. Or better yet, ancient indigenous societies, some of which were/are virtually matriarchal.

Plus, take in the fact that almost every modern cult leader has been accused of being a pervert. Maybe THAT's why organized religions are so male-chauvinistic.

I'm not stating religion invented sexism, but I do think it's the reason why there is more sexism towards women than towards men.

Hello there. Interesting subject but your previous thread should be suitable. Please continue discussion in your previous thread found in this very same forum:

ARE PEOPLE/MEN NATURALLY SEXIST TO WOMEN?

It's very similar in that your other thread also discusses the correlations between religion and sexism and was posted less than two months ago.

Thank You.
