The unique aspects of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's views on women's nature and her position in past, present, and future societies are based on two main premises. The first is the spiritual premise: the fundamental spiritual equality of all humans. All living beings have a trifarious nature: they function concurrently in the physical, mental, and spiritual spheres. In the spiritual domain, the ultimate joyful goal and perfection of human existence may be attained. In this domain there is no question of differences between humans - male or female, black or white, rich or poor - all are equally capable of spiritual realization. The second is the concept of a collective psychology of society. Sarkar's historical analysis shows how the dialectical evolution of society is based principally upon the progressive alternation of dominant collective psychologies. This analysis sheds new light on our understanding of social dynamics and its effect on the gender dialectic and on the historical reasons for the exploitation of women.

The auspicious signs of the awakening of women are clearly visible in every sphere of social life.[1]

- Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar

Bio-psychology: nature or nurture?

In recent times, detailed studies regarding the effect of the male and female hormones on the physiological and psychological structures, show that biological sex may not necessarily be the determining factor of psychological and emotional gender patterns, nor of physical strength and stamina.[2]
