Why do people think Mormons (LDS) treat women as second class citizens?

Please give me actual examples.

And the compound in Texas is not Mormon so don't point to that as an example.
Update: Earl....did you ever consider that maybe the wife wants to stay home? I am a Mormon woman. I would say it's about 50/50 that stay home vs. go to work. For most women, it's a choice made out of necessity to go to work. Most would like to be able to stay home. There are some that choose to work... show more Earl....did you ever consider that maybe the wife wants to stay home? I am a Mormon woman. I would say it's about 50/50 that stay home vs. go to work.

I choose to stay home with my kids. That was a choice I made ages ago. Nobody is forcing me to.
