As I said, "came the closest".  But your remark is funny.  I think her
reason for conversion had more to do with the overall philosophy, not the
tradition.  She didn't leave Christianity just because of the patriarchy.
That was probably only one of the many things she did not agree with.  I
don't know whether or not she is living in America or Europe, but if she
is, I doubt that the traditions of Islam have much effect on her.  It is
the philosophy that counts, really.

btw, it's good to hear from you again.  I heard your "pen" has been light
lately.  Perhaps you and I can start irritating everyone with our "sex
battles" once again....*laugh*
