Utopia is based on egalitarian principles and these principles extend to issues of gender Utopian women are allowed to work vote become priests fight and generally have just as much influence over Utopian affairs as do men True some pragmatic constraints are placed on women For example they are not expected or allowed to engage in heavy labor since in general they are not as strong as men But these pragmatic constraints do little to alter the staggering degree of freedom that Utopian women are afforded in contrast to European women However while Utopian women hold a basically equal secular standard as the men Utopian religion with its demand that women prostrate themselves before their husbands is formulated in such a way that it implicitly holds men as more religiously pure There does not seem to be any way to reconcile these differences in the status of Utopian women as secularly equal but religiously inferior Rather the differences seem to betray the underlying influence of sixteenth century Europe Thomas More creates a society in which women are given more rights and power than any in existence and yet even he cannot completely escape the European conviction that women were inferior
