The houses did not even have windows opening upon the outside world.Bahá’u’lláh destroyed these ideas and proclaimed the equality of man and woman.For the world of humanity consists of two parts or members: one is woman; the other is man.Until these two members are equal in strength, the oneness of humanity cannot be established, and the happiness and felicity of mankind will not be a reality.There is divine wisdom in this which will presently be made manifest even as the mid-day sun.' "The beloved Guardian in reply to the same query from a believer pointed out in a letter written on his behalf on July 15th 1947: 'People must just accept the fact that women are not eligible to the International House of Justice.As the Master says the wisdom of this will be known in the future, we can only accept, believing it is right, but not able to give an explanation calculated to silence an ardent feminist!One whose thought is pure, whose education is superior, whose scientific attainments are greater, whose deeds of philanthropy excel, be that one man or woman, white or coloured, is entitled to full rights and recognition; there is no differentiation whatsoever." "The world in the past has been ruled by force, and man has dominated over woman by reason of his more forceful and aggressive qualities both of body and mind.But the balance is already shifting—force is losing its weight and mental alertness, intuition, and the spiritual qualities of love and service, in which woman is strong, are gaining ascendancy.

In any case the believers should know that, as ‘Abdu’l-Bahá Himself has explicitly stated that sexes are equal except in some cases, the exclusion of women from the International House of Justice should not be surprising. They will enter all the administrative branches of politics.

Hence the new age will be an age less masculine, and more permeated with the feminine ideals—or, to speak more exactly, will be an age in which the masculine and feminine elements of civilization will be more evenly balanced." "It has been objected by some that woman is not equally capable with man and that she is deficient by creation. The difference in capability between man and woman is due entirely to opportunity and education.

Heretofore woman has been denied the right and privilege of equal development.

"In a Tablet to an early woman believer ‘Abdu’l-Bahá stated: 'O maidservant of God!

Know thou that in the sight of God, the conduct of women is the same as that of men… there is no difference between women and men…' He added, however: 'As to the House of Justice: according to the explicit text of the Law of God, its membership is exclusively reserved to men.
