2) Half‑civilized human societies

Different opinions were expressed about the women such as:

  • she does not have a human soul, hence no life in the Hereafter;
  • women’s deeds are not acceptable to God;
  • being a means of satanic seduction (human made religion) , she should be physically tortured
  • girls should be buried alive to wash away the scars of disgrace;
  • woman is a human being, but was created to serve man.

These and other such views in regard to woman have been expressed by the ancient Romans, Arabs, Frenchmen ,Athenians ( ancient Greek), most of Asia and the western world .  Basically the whole world at that time and I can’t imagine native Americans being any different! 😦
