Pythagoras the philosopher, and feminist

Most men and women, by birth or nature, lack of the means to advance in wealth and power, but all have the ability to advance in knowledge.

Pythagoras is inextricably linked to right angled triangles in my mind. However, he was also a philosopher who founded a school where woman enjoyed the same rights as males.
