In a great many low-tech societies (the kind that are sometimes assumed to be more like the way every culture was a long time ago) women are perceived as sources of potential pollution to adult males-and in some way the culture proscribes certain behaviors and sets up certain rituals to deal with the pollution. Women are perceived to carry a threat in some way. In the Bible and in early Greek religions-it was a female that brought evil into the world. My question is 1)if in fact women are associated with evil more so than men then, 2) why is this the case. So, If any one wants to discuss this further we can do this on this forum or by email.
