Religion as a weapon against women

From the Huffington Post, men stand around the remains
of a woman burned alive for sorcery in Papua New Guinea
after being stripped and tortured atop a garbage dump.
Gang rape in India, women burned alive in Papua New Guinea for sorcery, thousands of women killed for 'honor', and the Catholic Church fighting hard to prevent women from access to birth control and abortion even as they continue to protect sexual abusers of children among their ranks.

I'm really tired of religion being a weapon against women. How can any woman take comfort in a religion that empowers those who seek to control her and harm her?
