I guess that really matters on what you believe. If you really believe in that old book, it says that those things were indeed invented by your sect. At the very minimum the Old Testament says that women are to be subjugated to man in Genises, as well as the New Testament.We didn't invent slavery. We didn't invent the subjugation of women, we didn't invent racism, we didn't invent discrimination against homosexuals. These human flaws go back many millenia. I don't know if you are a bit shy on your knowledge of human history or human behaviour, but your stance doesn't make any sense.
I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling; likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works. Let a woman learn quietly owith all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.
