In the administration of a State, neither a
woman as a woman, nor a man as a man, has
any special function, but the gifts are equally
diffused in both sexes.

One woman
has the gift of healing, another not; one is a
musician, another not a musician; one woman is
a philosopher, and another is an enemy to phi-
losophy.

The same education and opportu-
nity for self-development which makes man a
good guardian (or ruler) will make woman a
good guardian (or ruler); for their original
ure is the same.

PLATO: Rep. Book V.
