Do Afghan women have humiliating position? Is it normal,that wife must obey her

Woman in Islam

According to sharia law, wife must to do all orders of her husband, she cannot withdraw from sex, also she cannot go to anywhere without husband or just leave house.
BUT, there 2(or may be 3) different points of view: 

1) American broadcasters told that wife has humiliating position and she is always under oppression and pressure. Husbands beat their wifes and responsibilities is only to take care of her food, clothe and vital needs. From the other hand, wife cannot cancel from sex, she cannot go without husband and leave house when husband is not at home.

2) Afghan Imams told that it is not violation of women's rights and according to Quoran and Sharia Law, women cannot have equal rights with men. They said that only obedient wife can go to heaven.
    Other some people said that it is the culture of Afghan people, and that it is normal action, when husband beat her wife.

It should be obvious that these women arent free. Theyre absolutely slaves to their husbands and culture in every meaning of the word. Fuck Islam

Rather, fuck cruel and insecure human beings defending their greed and violence with religion.

Side: Yes, they are slaves.

I'm going to have to vote on both sides of this. On one hand, yes, they are de facto slaves and are treated poorly, less than human even. But on the other hand, this treatment is in fact normal in the region; what is normal is not necessarily what is right, unfortunately.

I believe that the position choices in this particular debate are flawed- this isn't just a case of there being significant overlap between the two choices, but rather a case where both choices are 100% true.

Side: Yes, they are slaves.

I think, it is too strong pressure and wife has to do too much things. Also, it looks like selling your body for money(wife must to obey to her husband and the husband has to take care of her).

Side: Yes, they are slaves.

They are not wifes but property, owned by backward primitives that should not even exist in 2013.

Side: Yes, they are slaves.

Yepp, they say they are pleased to serve their husbands, and that they choose to wear the head dresses, but often as not, it's due to constant brainwashing as a child to follow strict Muslim law. Resulting in them feeling they are inferior, when in fact they are not.

Side: Yes, they are slaves.

It doesn't matter about "culture difference", its still slavery. Is cannibalism in Africa acceptable as long as its their culture?

Side: Yes, they are slaves.

Afghan women are slaves toward their husbands. The Afghan women should protest this abuse.
