Does Sharia in the Case of Rape Protect Women?

”Sharia law of rape”

This is what Sharia rules in the case of rape (contrary to the apologists’ claim that 4 male/ 8 women are needed to accuse someone, in fact…it is the contrary):
in case a woman gets raped , she is considered guilty of adultery unless she can provide four adult Muslim male witnesses who had watched the action and who would testify that the sex was actually forced on her and that she was not a willing partner in it. If she has only female witnesses in case she was raped by an intruder in front of her fellow wives and slave girls or in a women dormitory full of women witnesses then she is out of luck. Her punishment is stoning to death if she is married or hundred (100) lashes if single.

And what about the status of captured women during war?

With captured women: Allah has made sex with captured women and slave girls (right hand possessions) halal (=allowed) in Qur’an by five ayas (verses of the Qur’an: 4:3,
4:24, 23:6, 33:50, and 70:30). Is this not institutionalized rape?
