Smt xxx has forward' me a poem where I found the below line
The woman came out of a man's rib.
My Take :
I cant agree with the message u have FWD to me that women is created from Man.It smells ABRAHMIC religious bigotism. The art of male female relationship is now spoilt and ruined totally by the argument that women came from the rib of man . And with such disease in mind, it will not be possible to understand the prowess of Woman. Woman has her own identity she is shakti she is Durga. Any quote belittling women must be a concoction .
Hey Durga come on to earth to behead these kaliyug Narakasuras who with chauvinistic mindset downlook the women by propagating absurd theory of saying women came from Mans rib.

The importance of mother in Hinduism reveals that women were regarded highly.
Many parts of the vedas were written by women. The wives of Gautama, Agstya, etc. all had wives who were their equals.
