The Sin of Adam and Eve According to St. Thomas Aquinas
Saint Thomas Aquinas considered women defective:

"As regards the individual nature, woman is defective and misbegotten, for the active force in the male seed tends to the production of a perfect likeness in the masculine sex; while the production of woman comes from a defect in the active force or from some material indisposition, or even from some external influence."

Speaking as a Thomist, this is an irresponsible coverage of the much more developed anthropology of Aquinas, and the author should be ashamed of him or herself.
