Since women are becoming ever more conscious of their human dignity, they will not tolerate being treated as mere material instruments, but demand rights befitting a human person both in domestic and public life. Pope John XXIII, Pacem in Terris, April 1963
It is interesting that this was written in 1963. With #me too in the news the pope saw the problem many years ago. There are two versions of the creation of humans in the Bible. One has woman created from a rib of Adam and here is the other one.
Genesis 1:27 So God created humankind[e] in his image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
In this version male and female were created equally. Women must be respected.
Loving God, you created us in your image. Remind us to respect both sexes equally. AMEN
