This was in part due to the corruption of the Prime Directive from its TOS days as a simple policy of not giving the mundanes any hint that there was intelligent life beyond their planet and became an effective ban on the Federation and Starfleet "interfering" in the affairs of any member planet. But not only was this a bad policy, it was also one that was inconsistently enforced. At least two worlds the Federation had dealings with allowed the repression of an entire gender, but when Bajor temporarily reinstated a caste system, the Federation rejected its application for membership.
