Would things be different today if not for the Malleus Maleficarum supported by a Papal Bull, other wise known as the Catholic Inquisition

Between 1487 and 1520 over 5 million women were put to death for a myrid of reasons by the catholic church. Prior to this there was a balance of the male and female Isis the left and Amon the right. This was a purge of the materical and the advent of the patericial exclusive. Women were excluded from any leadersip positions and the left was thereafter considered bad and the right was considered good.

This one simple act by the church left women out of any equality for over 500 years and is still having a impact.

Would things have developed differently had women remained equals and the balance maintained between Isis and Amon ... the left and the right.
