Science and Theology
Based on the latest biological discoveries, as well as theological, including Judeo-Chrislamic sources, the mission of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is to establish the status of women as superior to create harmony between the two sexes: Once a woman is made a man’s superior, he becomes her equal, and not her inferior.
What the mystical scriptures had claimed for millennia is nowadays confirmed by scientific research: Even though culture and education both play significant roles, biology, mainly the chromosomes, genes, neurohypophysial hormones, their superior sense of smell, brain structure, and their greater interhemispheric connections are the main reasons for the uniqueness of the feminine attributes. Thus, women’s superior biological features conclusively command us to prioritize and utilize these qualities for the greater good of society. For more information, please visit Feminine Peace.
The Outcome Counts
Multiple Contagion effects
As indicated on Gender Harmony about the effect of a radical change of the status of women within the family dynamics, if a husband treats his wife with superior respect, there is a high likelihood that his son will act the same towards his future life partner. One of the significant consequences of this condition is that his son will eventually shield his wife from anyone. He will not allow anybody to make her feel inferior—not even his mother or father. Thus, this state will considerably reduce the typical in-law rivalry and conflicts within family dynamics. It also decreases marriage stress and enables a greater relationship between in-laws and extended family members.
Your Choice, Your Status
Women, in general, don’t distinguish men’s status as inferior or superior. They see men as their equals. However, men’s logical and binary mind offers two options: Inferior or superior. As long as women don’t recognize their role of being superior — and are unwilling to acknowledge the associated obligations, they will remain inferior and not equal.
Equal Status, Equal Violence
Violence Against Women and Girls
For most men, competitive aggression is fundamental for their rivalry, to exploit their full potential, and to protect their position. These characteristics could reflect the current violence against women and are likely to increase. Men no longer feel to protect women — quite the contrary — they suddenly realize that women are genuinely stronger than them.

Prophecies on the Status of Women
The mystical teachings link the state of world peace and prosperity directly with the status and role of women. Hence, there are many prophecies about the superior status of women, as Avraham, the father of all nations, named his wife Sōri (שרי), meaning “my superior.” Moreover, the secret behind the real Shield of David conveys the same message.
Let's reverse the curse of Adam and Hava
Without going into mystical scripture, we can also find a hint at the status of women in the Torah: In Bereshit 3:14, there were four “curses” or punishments given to man, woman, and the snake in the Garden of Eden, which we are taught to be reversed after the final redemption.
Our Choice, Our Wellbeing
A curse, however, is not a positive or desirable condition. Describing something as a “curse” means that this is not the way things ought to be. However, we have the power to reverse one of these four curses by changing women’s status in society. As elaborated on Gender Harmony, men are the primary beneficiary of this radical change.
Man Should Not Be Alone
The first time God noted something of his creation as “not good,” was when he created man (Bereshit 2:18). The Creator made woman as a “עזֶר כנגדוֹ” (‘counter helper’) to exist by man’s side.
All of God’s creations have a unique purpose. Creating women as equal to men does not make much sense, considering that she needs to guide him. Therefore, we understand there was a need for women, thus providing the framework for female superiority rather than equality.
Consequence and not Punishment
On a deeper level, what we call “curses” or “punishments” are just natural consequences. Furthermore, the reversal of the “curse” on the status of women, which is in complete control of humanity, will gradually lead to the reversal of the other “curses,” as elaborated on other SHEMIM‘s platforms.
