Today is International Women's Day.
Over the millennia, thinkers human and divine, all of them male, have taken up the woman question:
Regarding their anatomy:
Aristotle: 'Woman is an incomplete man.'
Saint Thomas Aquinas: 'Woman is the misbegotten product of some defect in the male seed.'
Martin Luther: 'Men have broad shoulders and narrow hips, and accordingly they possess intelligence.
Women have narrow shoulders and wide hips, to keep house and bear and raise children.'
Regarding their nature:
Francis de Quevedo: 'Hens lay eggs and women lay men.'
Saint John of Damascus: 'Woman is a sicked she-ass.'
Arthur Schopenhauer: 'Woman is an animal with long hair and short sight.'
Regarding their fate;
Jehovah said to women, according to the Bible: 'Thy husband shall rule over thee.'
Allah said to Muhammad, according to the Koran: 'Righteous women are obedient.'
Eduardo Galeano from 'Children of the Days'
