Here's an article that explains why men are superior to women, according to the Quran. Examples, taken directly from the Quran, include:
Husbands are a degree above their wives in a legal context. The Quran in Sura 2:228 says: "Wives have the same rights as the husbands have on them in accordance with the generally known principles. Of course, men are a degree above them in status."
Men are superior to women in a domestic context. The Quran in Sura 4:34 says: "Men are managers of the affairs of women because Allah has made the one superior to the other."
In dividing the inheritance, a female gets half of a maleís share. The Quran in Sura 4:11 says: "The share of the male shall be twice that of a female."
A womanís testimony often counts half of a manís testimony. The Quran in Sura 2:282 says: "And let two men from among you bear witness to all such documents [contracts of loans without interest]. But if two men be not available, there should be one man and two women to bear witness so that if one of the women forgets (anything), the other may remind her."
I have no idea if this even relates to what you were asking. You're welcome. http://www.answering-islam.org/Authors/Arlandson/women_inferior.htm
