I think the best thing would be to choose two different countries and compare them. When looking at women's rights, the issue is not just whether they have the same rights as men but whether they are considered property or people. In some countries, women have no rights at all.

If you are really interested in pursuing this topic in many different ways, examining the role of women in Tibet would be fascinating.  Initially, the discussion of Tibet as a nation is a powerful one.  The struggle for national identity away from the Chinese is one that virtually guarantees to pull in any reader because it is such a compelling topic.  Within this, the role of women in the struggle for Tibetan identity is powerful.  There is a recent documentary out that really does a great job of exploring this called "Women of Tibet:  A Quiet Revolution."  This film explores what Tibetan women did and how they suffered to see to it that the Dalai Lama could escape into India, away from the Chinese.  It also focuses on how Tibetan women had to fight and scratch their way into establishing an identity without a country.  The exiled Tibetan Assembly consists of 25% women, and Tibetans were more than happy to see women elevated to the role of political decision- making capacities.  Modern Tibetan women, who are not immediate descendants of the Chinese occupation of Tibet but still struggle with it, have taken to technology as a way to bring their message across that Tibetans, men and women, have rights and that Tibetan women can assert these rights today for change just as their mothers and grandmothers did.  The detailing of the women narrative in the last fifty years for Tibetan Independence can make for fascinating research and analysis.
