“You cannot find any big scientist, any big mathematician, any big philosopher amongst woman. That is not possible.”

“You cannot find any big scientist, any big mathematician, any big philosopher amongst woman. That is not possible.”

Prabhupada said, “This is psychologically true, that within the brain, the brain substance, if there is more, then one is more intelligent. So here it is alpa… Just see, modern scientific psychology, how it was known, long, long millions of years ago. At least five thousand years ago. Alpa-medhasah. And this is scientific fact. Those who are students of psychology, they know it. I was student of psychology, and our professor… He was a Scotman. He explained this brain substance, cerebular substance, Dr. Urquhart, that the more brain substance is there, more one becomes intelligent. And it has been found that a woman does not have more than thirty-six ounce of brain substance, whereas in man it has been found that he has got up to sixty-four ounce. Now, this is modern science. Therefore generally, generally, woman, less intelligent than man. You cannot find any big scientist, any big mathematician, any big philosopher amongst woman. That is not possible. Although in your country, you want equal status with man, freedom, but by nature you are less intelligent. What can be done?” – Lecture on SB 1.3.21, 26 September 1972, Los Angeles

“…the brain substance has been found up to 64 ounce, while brain substance of woman has been found, highest, 34 ounce.”

“…the brain substance has been found up to 64 ounce, while brain substance of woman has been found, highest, 34 ounce.”

Prabhupada said, “I was student of psychology in my college life. Dr. Urquhart said, I remember still, that the brain substance has been found up to 64 ounce, while brain substance of woman has been found, highest, 34 ounce. Therefore woman class is not so intelligent as man. There is no question of competition. It is actual, scientific fact.” – Lecture on SB 1.2.6, 3 August 1968, Montreal
