Are Christian women equal to Muslim women?

A Saudi GS feminist by the name of "Disregard Males" once said how the majority of Saudi women are like muppets and how she began to see the similarities between the 2 groups.

    In the Arab world they are; in the Arab world there is no difference between an Arab Christian woman and an Arab Muslim woman. I am glad Disregards Males was paying attention.

    Islam never underwent the same kind of Reformation Christianity did so while there are many different kinds of Christianity there are relatively few forms of Islam and none of them are as liberal as some of the Protestant sects of Christianity. A Saudi woman would likely be living under a Wahhabist interpretation of Islam where women are often encouraged (or forced) to be "muppets". She likely wouldn't have any concept of things like Episcopalians or Unitarians. So she's probably juxtaposing Muslim women with Orthodox or Coptic Christian women and in that case she's not entirely wrong.
