Disparities Between Man and Woman
Description:


From Woman and Her Rights, a very interesting book, by Ayatullah Mutahari
http://al-islam.org/WomanRights/index.html <http://al-islam.org/WomanRights/index.html>

Chapter: Disparities Between Man and Woman

This seems to be an odd phrase. It appears
that though we are living in the 2nd half of the
20th century, yet there are some people, here
and there, who have a medireview way of
thinking, and still pursue the outdated idea of
disparity between man and woman. Like the
people of the medireview ages they are of the
view that woman belongs to the inferior sex
and that she is not a perfect human being.
She is something betwixt and between man
and animal. She is not fit to lead an
independent life and must live under the
supervision and control of man. But we know
that all these ideas are outdated and
obsolete. Today we know very well that the
fake charge of imperfection against woman
was concocted by man during the days of his
ascendancy over her. Now, the proven fact is
that woman belongs to the superior sex and
man to the inferior one.

These are the views of some modern
Westerners. In actual fact, the wonderful
scientific progress of the 20th century has
clearly proved the existence of disparities
between man and woman. Their existence is
not a malicious misrepresentation but a
scientific truth, based on observation and
experiment. Anyhow, these differences have
nothing to do with the superiority or inferiority
of either sex. The law of creation has
ordained them simply to make the bond of
conjugal relations firmer and to lay the
foundation of the union between husband and
wife deeper and better. Nature wanted to
distribute family rights and obligations
between them with its own hands. The law of
creation has made the disparities between
man and woman similar to the difference
between the various organs of a body. If it
has given a distinctive position to each one of
the eyes, the ears, the hands, the feet and the
spinal column, it does not mean that it has
been unjust or has made any discrimination
against any of them.

IS IT PROPORTION OR PERFECTION AND
IMPERFECTION?

It is amazing that some people insist that the
disparity in the physical and psychological
capabilities of man and woman is due to the
imperfection of woman and the perfection of
man. They hold that, for certain good
reasons, woman has been intentionally
created imperfect.

The notion of the imperfection of woman has
been more popular in the West than in the
East. The people of the West have given her
a raw deal. Sometimes, misquoting the
religion, they say that woman should be
ashamed of herself. Sometimes they say:
"Woman is the being, having long hair and a
deficient brain", "Woman is the partition
between animal and man" and so on.

It is still more amazing that some Westerners,
having taken a 180 degree turn, have lately
begun trying to put forward a thousand and
bsp; one arguments to prove that by creation, man
is inferior and imperfect and that woman is
superior and perfect.

If you have read the book, 'Woman, the
Superior Sex', by Ashley Montague, you may
know how its author, by misrepresenting the
facts and adducing incongruous arguments,
has tried to prove that woman is more perfect
than man. As far as the medical and
psychological studies and social statistics are
concerned, this book is very valuable, but
where the author tries to draw his own
conclusions to prove his claim, which is the
title of the book, he goes to the utmost extent
of absurdity. It is not understood why it is
necessary that the Westerners should one
day disparage woman so much that the next
day, to make amends for the past, they are
compelled to absolve her from all the defects
which they had ascribed to her, and instead
debit man with them. What is the necessity of
regarding the differences between man and
woman as the result of the perfection of one
sex and the imperfection of the other, so that
we may be compelled sometimes to take
man's side and sometimes woman's?

The author of this book insists that woman is
superior to man and regards the privileges of
man as the product of historical and social
factors and not the result of natural causes.

In fact, the differences between man and
woman are a question of proportion or
suitability and not that of perfection or
imperfection. The law of creation has decreed
that as man a nd woman have been created
to lead a joint life, they should bear a specific
proportion of their capabilities despite all
differences. This point will be clarified later.

A PLATONIC THEORY

The subject of dissimilarity between man and
woman is not a new question, which might
have cropped up during our time. It is at least
2,400 year old. It was discussed, in its present
form, by Plato in his book, "The Republic".

He expressly maintains that men and women
have the same capabilities, and women can
perform the same jobs and enjoy the same
rights as men do.

The germs of all ideas about woman, which
have emerged during the 20th century and
even of that part of these ideas which
appears to be odd and unacceptable to the
20th century people, are found in the views of
Plato. That is why the people admire him so
much and call him the Father of Philosophy.
Plato, in the fifth part of his book, "The
Republic", has discussed such questions as
communism of women and children,
improving the breed, sterilisation of some men
and women, confining the breeding activity to
only those who possess high hereditary
qualities, rearing children outside the family
atmosphere, and confining procreation to
certain years of life, during which vitality is at
its peak.

Plato believes that, like man, woman should
also be given military training and, as man
takes part in athletic competitions, woman
should do so as well.

Anyhow, th ere are two points about what
Plato has said. One is that he admits that
physically and mentally women are weaker
than men. In other words, he considers the
disparity between man and woman to be
quantitative, though he is opposed to the
existence of any qualitative disparity in their
capabilities. He believes that both man and
woman have similar talents. The only thing is
that in certain respects woman is weaker than
man, but that is no reason why she should
have a separate sphere of activity.

As Plato regards woman weaker than man,
he thanks God that he was born a man. He
says: "I thank God for my having been born a
Greek, not a non-Greek, a free man not a
slave, and a man not a woman".

The second point is that all that Plato said
about the improvement of breed, equal
promotion of the talents of both the sexes,
and the communism of women and children,
is related only to the ruling class, that is the
ruling philosophers or philosopher-rulers,
because according to him, only this class is
worthy of being rulers. As we know, politically
he was an opponent of democracy and a
supporter of aristocracy. So what he has
said, on the above points, relates to the
aristocratic class. As for other classes, he has
different views.

ARISTOTLE VERSUS PLATO

Plato's pupil, Aristotle, is the next thinker of
the ancient world, whose views are available
to us. He has expressed his views on the
disparity between man and woman and has
strongly opposed the views of his teacher
Plato. He believes that man and woman differ
not only quantitatively but qualitatively also.
He says that the two sexes have talents of
different kinds, and the functions which have
been entrusted to them by the law of creation
and the rights which have been bestowed on
them by it differ greatly. According to
Aristotle, their rules of morality are also
different in many respects. It is possible that a
moral quality may be excellent in regard to
man, but it may not be so in regard to woman
and vice versa.

In the ancient world, the views of Plato were
replaced by those of Aristotle. The later
intellectuals preferred the views of Aristotle to
those of Plato.

THE VIEW OF THE MODERN WORLD

This was about the ancient world. Now let us
see what the modern world says. It does not
resort to speculation and approximation. It is
concerned with observation, test and
experiment. Its conclusions are based on
facts, figures and objective studies. In the
modern world, as the result of deeper
medical, psychological and social studies,
more and bigger disparities between man and
woman, unknown to the ancient world, have
been discovered.

The people of the ancient world evaluated
man and woman only on the basis that one is
rougher, taller and more hairy, having larger
limbs and a high-pitched voice, whereas the
other is finer, shorter, and cleaner, having a
low-pitched voice and smaller limbs. At the
most, they took into consideration the
difference in their age of puberty, and the
difference in their intellect and feelings. They
regarded man a symbol of wisdom, and
woman a symbol of love and emotions.

But now many other disparities have come to
light. It is now known that the world of woman
is different from that of man in many
respects.

We shall first narrate the differences between
man and woman, as far as we have gathered
them from the writings of the experts in this
field. Then we shall mention their philosophy
and shall point out which differences are
natural and which are the products of
historical, cultural and social factors. Some of
these differences are so obvious that they are
undeniable. The knowledge of others can b&
gained with a brief study and experience.

DUALITIES

From the physical point of view man, on an
average has larger limbs and woman smaller.
Man is taller and woman is shorter. Man is
coarser and woman is finer. Man's voice is
comparatively rough and heavy, and
woman's delicate and delightful. The bodily
growth of woman is quicker, and that of man
is slower. It is said that even the growth of a
female foetus is quicker than that of a male
foetus. Physically, man is stronger than
woman, and his muscles are more developed,
but woman has a greater power of resistance
than man. Woman reaches the stage of
puberty earlier, and loses the capability of
reproduction earlier. A girl speaks earlier than
a boy. The average brain of man is larger
than the average brain of woman, but, in
proportion to the whole body, the average
brain of woman is larger. The lungs of man
can breathe more air than those of woman.
The heart of woman beats more rapidly than
that of man.

Psychologically, man is more inclined to
physical exercise, hunting and active life. The
feelings of man are challenging and bellicose,
whereas woman has a peaceful disposition.
Man is aggressive; woman is comparatively
calm and quiet. Woman avoids violence, and
that is why the cases of suicide by women are
fewer. Even when committing suicide, men
tend to be more violent; they resort to
shooting or hanging themselves or jump off
lofty buildings, whereas women use sleeping
pills, opium etc. for this purpose. Woman is
more emotional than man and is more easily
excited. Man is comparatively cool-minded.
Woman is, by nature, much interested in
ornaments, cosmetics, make-up and the
latest fashions of clothes whereas man is not.
Feelings of woman are not stable; she is
comparatively fickleminded. She is more
cautious, more religious, more talkative, more
fearful and more ceremonious than man. Her
feelings are motherly from childhood She
cannot compete with man in deductive
sciences and dry intellectual subjects, but in
literature and arts like painting etc. she is not
at all behind him. Man has a greater power of
concealing his secrets. He can keep the
unhappy happenings to himself and that is
why he is more often afflicted with the
diseases caused by introversion. Woman is
more sensitive and soft- hearted than man;
she can easily resort to weeping and
sometimes even becomes unconscious.

A COMPARATIVE VIEW OF EACH OTHER

Man is the slave of his desires; woman is the
bonds-maid of love. Man loves the woman
whom he likes; woman loves the man who
realises her value and proclaims his love to
her. Man wants to own the woman; woman
wants to dominate man's heart. Man wants to
overpower woman; woman wants to
penetrate into his heart. Man wants to capture
woman; woman wants to be captured.
Woman wants man to be courageous and
gallant; man wants woman to be beautiful
and charming. Woman wants the protection
of man, and looks upon such protection as
the most valuable thing she can possess. She
can control her desires. Man's sexual urge is
active and aggressive, woman's passive and
excitable.

DISPARITIES BETWEEN MAN AND
WOMAN

An American psychologist, Professor Reek
has published in a voluminous book the result
of his researches into the affairs of man and
woman. He says: "The world of man is totally
different from that of woman. If woman
cannot think or act like man, it is because they
belong to two different worlds."

He further says: 'According to the Old
Testament, man and woman have come into
being from the same flesh. That is true, but
though they have come into being from the
same flesh, they have two different bodies,
which are totally unlike each other in
composition. They never have the same
feelings and never show the same reactions
to various incidents and accidents. They are
like two planets moving in two different orbits.
They may understand each other and may be
complimentary to each other, but they are
never unified. That is why they may live with
each other, love each other and may not get
fed up with the temperament of each other."

Professor Reek compares the spirit of man
with that of woman and discovers many of
their dissimilarities. He says:

"It is boring to man to have to live always with
the woman he likes. But nothing is more
pleasant to woman than to be near the man
she loves.

Man always wants to be the same, but
woman wants to get up every morning with a
new and fresh look.

The best sentence which a man can address
to a woman is: 'My dear, I love you'. The
most beautiful sentence, which a woman says
to a man of her choice is: 'I am proud of you'.

The man who has had several mistresses in
his life becomes an object of attraction for
other women, but men do not like the woman
in whose life more than one man has existed.
When men become old, they feel distressed
because they lose the jobs on which they
depended. The old women feels happy,
because, from their own point of view, they
come to possess all the best things one could
desire, a house and a few grandchildren.

Good luck from man's point of view means
securing a respectable position in the society.
But to a woman good luck means to
captivate the heart of a man and keep it safe
through out her life.

A man always wants to convert the woman of
his choice to his own religion and nationality.

For a woman it is as easy to change her
religion and nationality for the sake of the
man she likes as to change her family name
following the marriage."

A MASTERPIECE OF CREATION

Irrespective of the question whether or not
dissimilarity between man and woman causes
the dissimilarity in their respective rights and
responsibilities, dissimilarity itself is one of the
most wonderful masterpieces of creation. It is
a question which leads one to the recognition
of Allah and His Unity. It proves that the
system of this world has been most wisely
and exquisitely planned. It shows that
creation is not a matter of chance. Nature is
not a blind force. It is not possible to interpret
the world phenomena without recognising the
Ultimate Cause'. With a view to preserving
the species, the great creative mechanism
has brought the reproductive system into
existence. Males and females are
continuously being produced. As the
continuity of the human species depends
upon their mutual co-operation, nature has
seen to it that the males and females seek
coexistence with each other. For that purpose
self-interest which is essential to every living
being has been converted into sentiments of
bsp; service, co-operation and tolerance. To make
the scheme practical, and to ensure that their
bodies and souls fit in each other
comfortably, certain physical and spiritual
disparities between them have been
arranged. These very disparities attract man
and woman to each other. If woman had the
same physical features, the same
temperament and the same habits as man
has, it would not have been possible for her to
attract man towards her, in the same way as
she does now. If man had the same physical
and psychological features as woman has,
she would not have regarded him as her ideal
and would not have done anything to win his
heart. Man has been created to dominate the
world, and woman has been created to
dominate man.

The law of creation has so ordained that both
man and woman seek each other and are
interested in each other. But their relationship
is not of that nature which they have with
other possessions; that relationship emerges
from selfishness. They want to possess things
for their own use, and look on them as the
means of their comfort. But, the relationship
between man and woman means that each
one of them wants the comfort and happiness
of the other, and enjoys making sacrifices for
the sake of the other.

A CONNECTION HIGHER THAN PASSION

It is amazing that some individuals cannot
differentiate between sexual passion and
love. They think that the relation between
husband and wife is exclusively based on
greed, lust and a sense of exploitation. They
hold that this relationship is of the same kind
as man has with the things he eats, drinks,
wears or rides. These people do not know
that in nature, besides those based on
self-interest, there exists other relations also.
These are the relations from which sacrifice,
tolerance and goodwill proceed. These are
the relations which demonstrate humanity.
Such relations are, to a certain extent, found
among animals also, as far as their mates
and the young ones are concerned.

These persons think that man always looks at
woman, just as a bachelor sometimes looks
at a dissolute woman. They believe that only
lust can join man and woman together. In
fact, the matrimonial union is something
higher than physical passion, and its basis is
in what has been described by the Qur'an as
'affection and compassion'. The Qur'an says:
'And of His signs is this that He created your
mates from yourselves that you might find rest
in them, and He put between you affection and
compassion". (Surah ar-Rum, 30 : 21).

What a grave mistake it is to interpret the
history of man-woman relationship from the
angle of employment and exploitation, or on
the basis of a struggle for survival! But still
some people do so and advance baseless
arguments to support their line of thinking. We
are really amazed to see the history of
man-woman relationship being explained on
the basis of the principle of contradiction, as if
man and woman are two divergent social
classes w hich are always in conflict with each
other. If it is possible to explain the history of
the relations between fathers and children
from the angle of employment and
exploitation, only then the historical relations
of husbands and wives can also be explained
from this angle. It is true that man has always
been stronger than woman, but the law of
creation has so ordained that instinctively he
has not been able to mete out the same
unkind treatment to his wife as he has meted
out to his slaves, subordinates and
occasionally, even to his neighbours.

We do not deny that men have been cruel to
women. We are only against the way how this
cruelty is explained. Throughout history, men
have oppressed women, but they maltreated
their children also, despite all the love they
have had for them, and despite ignorance,
prejudice and custom, and not by way of
exploitation. Roots of these kinds of
oppressions are those very factors which
make man Oppress and do injustice to
himself; these are: ignorance, bias, traditions
and habits, more than selfish cravings.

THE DUALITY OF THE FEELINGS OF MAN
AND WOMAN WITH REGARD TO EACH
OTHER

Not only are the family relations of man and
woman with each other different from their
relation to other things, but also their attitude
to each other is not similar. In other words,
the nature of the relation of man to woman is
different from that of woman to man, though
they both attract each other, but, unlike the
non -living bodies, in this case, the smaller
body pulls the larger body to itself. Man has
been created as a manifestation of longing,
love and pursuit, and woman as a
manifestation of attraction and desirability.
The feelings of the two are of different but
complementary kind. One seeks and the other
wishes to be sought after.

Sometime ago, a newspaper published the
photograph of a young Russian girl who had
committed suicide. This girl left a note in
which she said that no man had ever kissed
her and so her life had become unbearable.

For a girl it is a matter of great
disappointment that no man loves her and
nobody has kissed her. But a young boy is
not frustrated if no girl has kissed him. He is
frustrated only when he is not able to kiss a
girl.

Will Durant in the course of his exhaustive
discussion, says that a girl whose only merit is
knowledge and high thinking. but who lacks
natural charm and semi-conscious
cleverness, is not likely to succeed in finding a
husband. Sixty per cent of the university
educated women remain without a husband.

He says that an eminent woman intellectual
complained that nobody was willing to marry
her. She used to say: 'Why doesn't anybody
love me? I can be better than most of the
women. Still, many insignificant women are
wanted, but I'm not."

It may be observed that the sense of
frustration of this woman is different from that
of any man. She complains as to why nobody
loves her.

Man is frustrated only when he cannot find a
woman of his choice, or, if he finds her, he
cannot win her.

The temperaments of man and woman have
been so ordained, that with the definite
purpose of making the union between
husband and wife firm and deep it may
enable both of them to enjoy their life better.
In fact, the foundation of the human society
and the upbringing of the future generations
has been laid on this very union.

A lady psychologist writes: "As a psychologist
my biggest interest has been the study of the
spirit of men. Some time ago I was given an
assignment to investigate the psychological
factors of man and woman. I arrived at the
following conclusions:

(i) All women are interested in working under
the supervision of someone else. They like to
work as a subordinate rather than a boss.

(ii) All women want to feel that their existence
is effective and is required".

This psychologist expresses her views thus: "I
believe that these two spiritual requirements
of women proceed from the fact that women
are led by emotions and men by reason. It is
often observed that women are not only equal
to men in intelligence, but sometimes even
superior to them. Their only weak point is that
they are too emotional. Men's thinking is
always more practical. They judge better;
they are better organisers and better
directors. The superiority of the spirit of men
to that of women is a thing which has been
nbsp; designed by nature itself. Whatever women
may do to counter this fact will be of no avail.
Women should accept the reality that, as they
are too sensitive, they need men's supervision
in their lives. The biggest aim of women's life
is to 'ensure' her future. Once she achieves it,
she says goodbye to many of her activities.
She is afraid of taking risks. Fear is the
sentiment, to overcome which woman needs
man's help. All jobs which require constant
thinking are boring to her".

A HASTY MOVEMENT

The European movement for the restoration
of women's rights was a hasty affair
conducted with undue urgency. The reforms
being outstanding, scientific consideration
was not given to the proposed measures, with
the result that they became a conglomeration
of good and bad points. No doubt, a series of
miseries of women were removed, many
rights were granted to them and doors
hitherto closed were opened for them by the
women's Rights movement, but at the same
time the reforms brought, in their wake other
misfortunes and miseries, not only to women,
but to the whole human society. If undue
hurry had not been made, women's rights
would have been restored in a better way and
there would have been no hue and cry by the
intellectuals against their evil effects. Anyhow,
it is hoped that better counsels would prevail
and future reforms, instead of being
emotional, would proceed with knowledge
and a sense of understanding. Comments of
the intellectuals augur well for the f uture. It
appears that the Westerners are suffering
from the after-effects of the same reforms
which seem to be exhilarating to their
imitators in the East.

WILL DURANT'S VIEW

Will Durant in his book, Pleasures of
Philosophy", has elaborately discussed the
sexual and family questions. We select some
of his ideas so that the readers may become
acquainted with the course of current thought
among the western intellectuals and avoid
hasty conclusions.

He says under the heading 'Love'. "The first
clear tune of love begins with the coming of
puberty. Puberty is a Latin word, meaning the
age of hair, that is the age of the appearance
of hair on the body of the boys, especially on
their chest which is a matter of pride for them,
and on the face, which they regularly shave.
The quality and quantity of hair, other things
being equal, is related to the power of
procreation and genesis. Hair is in its best
condition at the peak of virility. This growth of
hair, along with the coarseness of voice, is a
part of the secondary sex characteristics,
appearing in the boy at the time of puberty.
As for the girls, at the time of puberty nature
makes their bearing and movements so
graceful that they attract the attention of
onlookers. Their buttocks begin to flatten to
facilitate maternity. Their breasts develop and
become prominent to suckle a child. Nobody
knows exactly what is the cause of the
appearance of these secondary sex
characteristics. Anyho w, the theory of
Professor Starling has lately found many
supporters. According to it, the genital cells,
at puberty, not only produce spermatozoa
and ova, but also secrete a hormone that
enters the blood and causes physical, spiritual
and other changes. At this age, not only does
the body attain a new vigour, but the spirit,
conduct and demeanour are also affected in
innumerable ways. Romain Rolland says that
during the years of life a time comes when
many slow physical changes result in further
development of a male or a female. The most
important of these changes are the
appearance of heart-warming boldness and
vigour in a male, and the fascinating grace
and delicacy in a female. Damoseh says that
by nature basically "all men are liars, deceitful,
braggarts, hypocrites, cunning and
quarrelsome; and all woman are selfish,
ostentatious and unfaithful. But there is one
thing in the world which is noble and sacred,
and that is the union of these two imperfect
beings . . towards perfection.

The etiquette of mate-seeking in adults
consists of an attack by a male to gain a free
hand but withdrawal by a female for incitation
and deception (of course, there are
exceptions). As man, by nature, is war-like
and a hunting animal, his action is positive
and aggressive. Woman for him is a reward
which must be carried off and owned.
Mate-seeking is a fight and struggle, and
marriage is possession and domination. The
existence of substantial chastity in woman
serves the interests of procreation, for shy
abstinence of a female is helpful to her in
choosing her mate. Chastity prevents women
from being casual in the choice of her lover,
that is the father of her future children.
Woman speaks for collective interest and
man for individual interest. . . . Woman is
more skilful in making courtship, for her desire
is not so intense as to make her shut her eyes
to reason.

Darwin has observed that in most species a
female is not much interested in love-making.
Other naturalists, like Lemberzo, Cash and
Kraft Ebing are also of the opinion that
women are more inclined towards being
attractive, receiving the vague and general
appreciation of men, and more interested in
men paying attention to her real inner desires
than in seeking sexual pleasure. Lemberzo,
and others say that "the natural basis of
woman's love is only a secondary
characteristic of her motherhood. All the
feelings and sentiments which join woman to
man, do not proceed from her physical needs,
but derived from her instinct of submission
(placing herself under the protection of man).
This instinct is meant to meet the
requirements of her factual position

Will Durant in the chapter under the heading,
'Man and Woman', says: "The main function
of woman is to serve the cause of the survival
of the species, and that of man to serve his
wife and children. They may have other
functions also, but based on wisdom and
expediencies they are subservient to these
; two basic ones. These are the two basic but
semi-unconscious human objectives, on the
realisation of which the happiness of
humanity depends. Woman, by nature, mostly
seeks peace, not war. It appears that in many
species the female has no bellicose instinct at
all. If it ever resorts to fighting, it does so for
the sake of its offspring.

Woman is more patient than man, though
man is bolder in facing the risky and critical
jobs of life. She has more endurance, and can
face the countless minor hardships and
irritations of daily life better. Her martial spirit
is confined to her appreciation of this spirit in
others. She loves soldiers and likes strong
and sturdy men. As such she may be
influenced by mysterious masochistic
tendencies and be victimised by manly
strength.

The spirit of appreciating strength and vitality
in others sometimes overshadows her
economic sense, and occasionally she prefers
to marry a brave man. She gladly submits to
a man who commands in just and fair ways
over others. If women are not so obedient
nowadays, as they used to be before, it is
because men are now weaker in strength and
her own surroundings and is usually limited to
her house. She her own surrounding and is
usually limited to her house. She is as deep as
nature. She is also as limited as her house.
Her instinct keeps her attached to old
traditions. She is neither mentally nor
habitually given to trial. (Some women living
in big cities may be an exception). If she
; resorts to free love, that is not because she
wants freedom in that but it is because she
has met without disappointments when she is
married to a responsible man. If in her youth
she sometimes gets enamoured of politics
and extends her interest to multifarious
human aspects, she usually gives up all such
activities after finding a faithful husband, and
quickly pulls herself and her husband out of
public affairs. She reminds her husband that
his sense of intense loyalty should be limited
to his home as woman does not require much
thinking to know that all reforms begin at
home. As she turns a fanciful and vagrant
man into a man tied to his home and children,
the survival of mankind depends on her. She
is not concerned by nature with laws and
governments. Her house and children are the
objects of her love. If she is successful in
looking after them, she does not care which
government comes into power and which
government goes out of power. Nature does
not care for the laws of the governments. It
holds the household and the child dear. If it
succeeds in preserving them, it is not
interested in the governments, and laughs at
those who try to change the basic laws. If
today nature appears to be helpless in
protecting the household and the child, that is
because the woman has since long forgotten
the nature. But the failure of the nature is not
everlasting. It can always draw upon
hundreds of advantages it has in store,
whenever there is occasion for it. There are
nations and races more numerous than we
are, and nature can ensure its absolute and
indefinite continuity from among them."

N.B: In Japan 86% women does not want to get married. Because they think they will become similar to slave women. They are trying to change the law of nature, So they are getting problem day by day in society .

How we think about woman depends on our background.In Bangladesh as we grow up we used to here things like ' girls can't do this,girls don't understand this and don't act like a girl(wee they say it here in u.s too).So,what most of us think about woman is not our own view but it is the creation of men running world.It is changing and people do understand that its not true,women are doing everything men are doing.So,other than physical strength there is no other significancs desparities between man and woman.
