Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands. ~ 1 Peter 3:1, The Bible
Religions commonly codify sexism. The Bible is replete with blatant misogyny and barbarity toward women. (Biblical misogyny is found in: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Samuel (1&2), Kings (1&2), Chronicles, Esther, Psalms, Proverbs, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Hosea, Nahum, Matthew, Luke, 1 Corinthians, Ephesians, Colossians, 1 Timothy, 1 Peter, and Revelations.)
Despite scripture, Christian praxis has glacially progressed. Though Catholics and Mormons still treat women as lesser creatures, Christians otherwise are generally somewhat less patriarchal now than a century ago. Many denominations allow women ministers. In contrast, Islamic and Hindu women still suffer relentless oppression.
