Summary: 

Islamic doctrine about women is the same as it is on all issues—duality and submission. Dualism demands a worldview that everything is seen not as a unified whole, but as divided. The primary political duality is the division between kafirs (unbelievers) and believers. The primary internal duality is the division between males and females. The principle of submission means that one must rule over the other. No surprise, the women must submit to the men.
