The tidbit (quoted below) on this theme is shared from an article in The Daily News in Denver, Colorado on September 25, 1912. The entire article is so thrilling that I cannot adequately describe it. I can only encourage you to take a few minutes to read the account given by the reporter for The Daily News.
“The accomplishments of wonderful women in our own times gives us the keen anticipation of many extraordinary women in the future. So far as equality is concerned, both men and women must be equal. Men and women are as wings bearing humanity aloft. If one wing is weak the flight is hampered. Both wings must be equally strong in order that the bird may take its way to progress. Therefore, as women become the peers of men the world of humanity will soar.”
And ‘Abdu’l-Bahá sees no reason that woman is not man’s equal. As the mind and the soul are sexless so there should be no discriminations except those dependent upon frailer physique concerning women. Women, he believes, having finer sensibilities, finer intuitive powers, are often man’s superiors.
Science and religion, instead of being conflicting, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá compares to the same simile as that used for men and women — both are wings of the same truth."
