Catholicism enshrines womenly virtues through the character of Mary, mother of Jesus, in contrast to Mary Magdalene, his apostle and possibly lover (nothing says she aint, and plenty of ancient documents say she was!).
Mary Mother of Jesus is celibate, obedient, and a willing servant. Even giving birth without knowing sex with a man- this shows the level of mysogyny inherit in post-catholic christianity- which reviles femininity. Early christianity saw the Holy Spirit as a feminine expression of God's will, and Mary Magdalene was seen as an apostle of JC in early christianity- however, after christianity became institutionalised and selections of gospels became canonised in 320's and onward, Christianity has had a very patriarchal trend.
And for the poster who said to look into gnosticism for a celebration of the femine- i've looked, and it's not there, the Gnosticism creation myth has a goddess, Sophia, as giving birth to Yawheh by trying to know the Unknowable Deity, in other words, by being a silly woman, she makes a huge mistake, similiar to Genesis, a woman is seen as being at fault for the problems with the current predicament.
However, Gnostic, allow me to congratulate you as being the only other human being i've ever come across, apart from professors at my university who actually know that stuff. I hope to strike up a conversation with you in the future.
