You forgot the Pauline quote about how women are created in the Image of Man, not God:rolleyes:
Honestly, the Bible is pretty anti-woman if you interpret all the passages literally. You have to add a lot of context (as the Catholic Church now does) to give the Book a pro-woman spin.

What are your views on feminism and the Bible? Is feminism blasphemy? Could it be the cause of so many seperations in marriage?
I'd like your opinions.
What are the Church teachings on these verses below? What were they before Vatican II and after Vatican II?
"To the woman he said: "I will intensify the pangs of your childbearing; in pain shall you bring forth children. Yet your urge shall be for your husband, and he shall be your master." - Genesis 3:16
"But I want you to know that Christ is the head of every man, and a husband the head of his wife, and God the head of Christ." - 1 Corinthians 11:3
"women should keep silent in the churches, for they are not allowed to speak, but should be subordinate, as even the law says.
But if they want to learn anything, they should ask their husbands at home. For it is improper for a woman to speak in the church." 1 Corinthians 14:34-35
"Wives should be subordinate to their husbands as to the Lord.
For the husband is head of his wife just as Christ is head of the church, he himself the savior of the body.
As the church is subordinate to Christ, so wives should be subordinate to their husbands in everything." - Ephesians 5:22-24
"Wives, be subordinate to your husbands, as is proper in the Lord." - Colossians 3:18
"A woman must receive instruction silently and under complete control.
I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man. She must be quiet.
For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
Further, Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and transgressed.
But she will be saved through motherhood, provided women persevere in faith and love and holiness, with self-control." - 1 Timothy 2:11-15
"Likewise, you wives should be subordinate to your husbands so that, even if some disobey the word, they may be won over without a word by their wives' conduct" - 1 Peter 3:1
