4. Understand the true and beautiful Islamic principles behind superiority (of the husband over the wife), which the nature of woman necessitates ... and do not take this as means of oppression.

Why does this fit with the Teachings of Muhammad (peace upon his memory) about men and women are equals into God's eyes? The Holy Book says it, but it also says, for the first time in the Ancient World even, that women can be divorced of their husbands if a wise leader agrees they are in pain, and can be free again.

The Prophet, as far as I'm concerned, didn't asked for women any different thing that to men. so... why is really the point of superiority?
