Whosoever draweth nearer to God, that one is the most favoured, whether man or woman.How many a handmaid, ardent and devoted, hath, within the sheltering shade of Bahá, proved superior to the men, and surpassed the famous of the earth.Hence the new age will be an age less masculine, and more permeated with the feminine ideals—or, to speak more exactly, will be an age in which the masculine and feminine elements of civilization will be more evenly balanced."

The difference in capability between man and woman is due entirely to opportunity and education.Heretofore woman has been denied the right and privilege of equal development.The first word and its pronoun are generic, collective; the other is restricted to the male. "To accept and observe a distinction which God has not intended in creation is ignorance and superstition …"It is my hope that the banner of equality may be raised throughout the five continents where as yet it is not fully recognized and established."In a Tablet to an early woman believer ‘Abdu’l-Bahá stated: 'O maidservant of God!

"In this day man must investigate reality impartially and without prejudice in order to reach the true knowledge and conclusions.When the women attain to the ultimate degree of progress, then according to the exigency of the time and place and their great capacity, they shall obtain extraordinary privileges. His Holiness Bahá’u’lláh has greatly strengthened the cause of women, and the rights and privileges of women is one of the greatest principles of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.

In powers and function each is the complement of the other.He made woman respected by commanding that all women be educated, that there be no difference in the education of the two sexes and that man and woman share the same rights.In the estimation of God there is no distinction of sex.
