Woman came into being to kick the butt of stupid ‘he’ men who think women were created as a plaything for them!
On a serious note though, the Source of All That Be, is but One. From it all emanates - the masculine and the feminine. Quintessentially, there’s not an iota of difference between both energies, that we call man and woman. Since their inner make is in the image of the One that created them both.
The literature of a dark age may distinguish, and even demean women, and project men as the ruling kingpin - but in actuality, in their soul-form, as far as the quintessence is concerned, the masculine is not stronger than the feminine. Just different. That too seemingly so. Not in actuality.
For example, one wave of the ocean is non-different from the next. And in fact, is no different from the ocean itself. Metaphysically speaking, each is the other. For, the essence is one. In this instance, water is the “make” of both the wave and the ocean. Looking deeper, the wave is the ocean, and the ocean the wave. With neither a veil separating them, nor a difference ailing them.
Similar is the “make” of men and women. Outwardly different, both are equal and identical in their inner make. Alternatively, it may be said that both are the same, and identical to the One that makes them. In fact, all is a One!
This is the Inner Reality of Whatever Is. That is, each part that we see ‘here’ as differing from or separated from the other, is but One Whole out ‘There’. Thus is found the Ultimate Reality at the End.
Therefore, in seeking an answer to the reason as to why women are "here", is to be presumptive. It assumes that men were created for something valid, but what the hell are the women for! The “doubting Thomas” is implicit in the query herein. In this male dominated world.
But this world itself is an illusion. Hence, creation itself does not matter!
Searched to the limit, the Highest Truth that emerges in the ‘Awakening’, is that eventually “All is One” at the End. No man or woman, messiah nor this-that god, a hell or a heaven is found “alive” - as an entity, form or a godly character etc. - whence the beginning is the end, and the end the beginning. In Enlightenment. In Self Realization.
The conscious divinity left “standing last” out “there”, is but a Universality.
The whole cosmos, the entire life in its primordial essence, and the constituting consciousness therein, is an Absolute Oneness. Neither different, nor two or more. Or even a one. Just an Infinite Whole is the Only One.
Man nor woman, god nor human, but an Eternity in Unity. Thus is the “make” of each and everything. And of both men, and women.
Nobody was created for nobody.
But were the women not there, neither would be the silly idiots - men.
