Macedo said if his daughters, Cristiane and Viviane, attended college it would be too problematic.
“If Cristiane were a doctor and had a high degree of knowledge and met a boy who had a low degree of knowledge, he would not be the head. She would be the head,” he said.
In his speech, Macedo reportedly suggested, according to another translation from Hypeness, that a woman’s happiness is only possible through submission to a man. Sending his daughters to college does not help them to submit.
