Questioning Gender Equality

When mystics say that God is love, or when Aleister Crowley says ‘Love is the law’, they are not referring to the love that is woman’s destiny. Indeed, many Platonists believe that women are not capable of love at all, because they were men’s inferiors physically, socially, intellectually and even in terms of physical beauty.

(Germaine Greer [1970, 1971] The Ideal in THE FEMALE EUNUCH)
