At the core we are unity, this is absolute truth. But in life there is separation, and we are on Paths to return to that unity. Are these Paths different for women and men? Traditional religions are dominated by men as teachers and leaders, is it a relative truth that men are spiritual leaders? Or is the practice simply chauvinism?

There are many wise spiritual male leaders but not many women. In Theravada Buddhism this is institutionally defined but is being questioned. Will there be a female pope?
