"... if it's apparent that [men and women] differ only in this respect, that the females bear children while males beget them, there has been no kind of proof that women are different from men with respect to what we're talking about, and we'll continue to believe that our guardians and their wives must have the same kind of life" (Plato, Republic, 454d-e).
