Women & Men – Different But Equal?

PRINT

After thousands of years of male dominance, we now stand at the beginning of the feminine era, when women will rise to their appropriate prominence, and the entire world will recognize the harmony between man and woman.  — Excerpt from Toward a Meaningful Life

Contemporary society is just beginning to delve into the true distinctions between men and women. Besides the obvious physiological differences, there are also differences in the way men and women think, speak, and behave.

In order to understand the essential nature of man and woman, we must do away with human subjectivity and look through G-d’s eyes. Every human being, man and woman, was created for the same purpose — to fuse body and soul in order to make themselves and their world a better and holier place. In their service of G-d, there is absolutely no difference between a man and a woman; the only difference is in the way that service manifests itself.

What are the differences between men and women?

Man and woman represent two forms of divine energy; they are the male and female elements of a single soul.

G-d is neither masculine nor feminine, but has two forms of emanation: the masculine form, which is more aggressive, and the feminine form, which is more subtle. For a human being to lead a total life, he or she must have both forms of energy: the power of strength and the power of subtlety; the power of giving and the power of receiving. Ideally, these energies are merged seamlessly.

Men are physically stronger. By nature, they are usually more aggressive and externally oriented. In contrast, a woman usually embodies the ideal of inner dignity. Some people confuse such subtlety with weakness; in truth, it is stronger than the most aggressive physical force imaginable. True human dignity does not shout; it is a strong, steady voice that speaks from within. The nature of a woman, while subtle, is not weak. And the nature of a man, while aggressive, is not brutish. For man and woman to be complete, they must each possess both energies.

The answer is not for men and women to try to be alike. All men and women must be themselves, realizing that G-d has given each of us unique abilities with which to pursue our goals, and that our primary responsibility is to take full advantage of those abilities.

What is true liberation for both sexes?

Though feminism rightfully calls for the end of male domination and abuse, and for equal rights for women, it is vital to get to the root of the distortion — that our focus in life, as man or woman, must not be simply to satisfy our own ego or needs, but to serve G-d. True women’s liberation does not mean merely seeking equality within a masculine world, but liberating the divine feminine aspects of a woman’s personality and using them for the benefit of humankind.

After so many years of male dominance, we are standing at the threshold of a true feminine era. It is time now for the woman to rise to her true prominence, when the subtle power of the feminine energy is truly allowed to nourish the overt power of the masculine energy. We have already proven that we can use our strength to slay the demons around us; let us now learn to nurture the G-dliness within.

ACTION

Men and women must realize their respective equal roles and strive to complement each other in their shared struggle to improve life. In order to correct the abuse of male dominance, men must concentrate on using their dominant qualities for the good. They must use their strength to protect and preserve the feminine character, helping women realize their true potential in revealing  G-dliness, which the world so desperately needs today.

Learn about what it means to be a man or a woman, about masculine and feminine energy. Learn to live up to your potential, to balance these energies to lead a productive and meaningful life — a G-dly life. And finally, learn to appreciate and respect your male or female counterpart.

I read the nature deeply. you are right man and woman are different in shape but they have the equal right in every aspect. because by giving women equal rights in every aspect give us a true wise companion. what you think a man dominance shows one man show and equal right couple are the true partners and more stringer than man dominance.

Hallie

Women today Aren’t like the good old days at all unfortunately.

john

True that

Gwynneth

Men are not physically stronger than women, science just proved that men are the weaker sex. And saying that men are naturally more aggressive and that women are naturally more subtle is only talking stereotypes. So much for telling men and women to be themselves…

Enrique

What?????????????

Jerry

“Men are not physically stronger than women, ïscience just proved that men are the weaker sex.” haha, right. Men lift 3x times more at Strongman than the women lifters. The most powerfull women aren’t even close to the male lifters. You can check the strongman stats yourself, if you want prove ofc.

I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site.

often. Did you hire out a designer to create your
theme? Outstanding work!

Based on Mark Davis of “Dream Connections” agency, a man and a woman must be equal and fair with each other.

They are different physically, mentally, and emotionally.

But, they are both human, eternal, imperfect, sinful, and held responsible for their actions, words, and thoughts especially by God.

If they want their relationship to work, they must have equality, honesty, communication, and other godly qualities.

do woman earn less than men for equal work
is it true most rural woman are unemployed

lynn oliver

The belief boys should be strong allows aggressive treatment from infancy so they will be tough. There is less verbal interaction support for fear of coddling. This creates high, maintained layers of average stress for boys (new thought will send to all). These layers remain in the mind taking away real mental energy from academics so they will have to work harder to receive the same mental reward. This treatment creates emotional distance of others. It creates lags in communication girls are given daily. The high stress creates activity for stress relief not genetics. This creates higher muscle tension which… Read more »

Dreamt of a sweet, caring, compassionate, forgiving, woman who is oriented with God’s will and willing to submit to His plan for her life.

Married a woman who is type-A and very career and academically oriented. She has become pretty frequently foul-mouthed and opinionated, doubtful of the Bible and questioning of everything in it, severely untrusting of the church, and with lengthy periods with nothing but criticism for me.

I love my wife but my heart longs for her to be like the person I dreamed of.

Jkjeheb

When she is being doubtful and questioning, that means she is critically thinking and considering the circumstances and the nuanced world around her. That’s something that should be celebrated and acknowledged as a positive attribute.

Tqs a lot dis topic helped me a lot …for my debate

Callie

he owed any thing in his time and seniority rights to lower seniority just because they or momy and daddy had some kind of community position, Did it say in the nations or states constitution he had rights any less than those of any one else< Did it say any where except in my mercenary mind and his fathers good old boy network that he was to be a slave, work first to last light, and his father said he had one other option if he felt that way, He could have vanished and gone dark, My husband said He… Read more »

Callie

My husband of 35 years never would talk through the role he was to play in the Community and family. He wanted all of his rights to be as equal as everyone else. To the point that for long periods of time we had to keep him from just taking those right through both blackmail, and legal means to keep him from harming others in the community with what he could take in those rights. Like the vacation times he wanted, the holidays he wanted, even the weekends he wanted had to be denied for fear that the first time… Read more »

I would like to know if this was written based on how society views men and women or how God views men and women. I would also like to know where in the bible you have pulled your information from since this article states God.

Really. Why only men should take the provider role? Even though some women are working. Taking the provider role from working is different. 50% bills women must pay. But how many women are paying. Marriage. Men should have property, men should have high salary, men should more height than women, men should more status etc. If men are lessor of any thing than women, No women will marry such men. So everything at the cost of man, man’s parents. House work: Even men are doing house work. When man is bringing his property into the marriage, how many women are… Read more »

Can someone tell me who wrote this please?

But nowadays women are treating equal in the and sometimes women also take advantage of their rights .

Rubes

the fact that for wearing a singlet i get harassed and got turned away from a soccer club as ‘one woman’s team is enough, its gross and unwelcome’ sure is equal.

Samantha

So did men when they had all the rights. Not condoning what women do, but it seems the human race is the problem and not just women and not just men. If the laws we’re fairer on men it would put women in check and men wouldn’t be so up in arms about gaining all the power back again.

Stacy

In Canada Women and Men are all most equel

Truth

Quite a change in the women of today unfortunately compared to the women of years ago that were so much nicer with a much better personality as well. What in the world happened to them today?

Samantha

Social media and third wave feminism.
People always blames feminism as a whole but it’s actually the third wave that has become the problem, and also the internet. A balance will ensue with the universal law of cause and effect. We just need to stop encouraging the behaviour as a society, and it will change.

shubhm

Thank you for your topic

Andy

It is not impossible for one to understand the other. We all suffer the burden we are able to bear. One is not greater than another. Each complements the other. Identify as humans, as humanity. Understand another’s burden, so understand your own. If you can. 6 valid points? Your father and mother, and theirs. Or the question could not be asked.

The Very Truth Of All

Well with many women having a Career making a six figure income which they’re doing much better than many of us men make.

Lexi

WHY AREN”T WE EQUAL

Briana

When writing an essay on women discrimination, writers should look at the history. Their argument should be based on verifiable statistics. The information should be discussed in the concept of social economic consequences. Discrimination against women is one of the major societal problems over time now. It has brought major impact learning, domestic life, and community institutions as well. This challenge has been an issue globally. There has been a perception that women belong to certain professions for example; in nursing, teaching, and secretarial work.
