Strange definition of "open society"... do you call open a society which traditionally denies all rights to women ?

To the point of condoning sati - which is the burning of a man's widow on his funeral pyre...

Or where the most stringent punishment for a man raping a girl was to pay a steep fine to her father for the shame he (not her) was exposed to,

Besides practices like Purdah (a woman must never show herself uncovered in any way outside of the home) were already well entrenched well before the english came to make things even worse :-)
