Just a Buddha's definition of (the vicāra* of) women in the Tipitaka (not entirely similar in the Agama) — and not derisive (just factual) :
* Here, vicāra [act. vicar], as a" mode of acting" (ŚrS.)“Women have a man as their ambition. They’re preoccupied with adornments. They’re dedicated to their children. They insist on being without a co-wife. Their ultimate goal is authority.”
"Itthī pana, bho gotama, kiṁadhippāyā, kiṁupavicārā, kiṁadhiṭṭhānā, kiṁabhinivesā, kiṁpariyosānā”ti?
In this world, there are many people acting and yearning for the Mara's world; some for the Brahma's world; and very few for the Unborn.

That just his opinion. And his opinion doesn't amount to anything compared to the authority of ancient parampara system.
And foremost, he is of Mahayana later sect of Chinese Buddhism. Out of league. He should have stayed in his domain of Mahayana doctrine.
"The self tries so hard. Like the wooden boy Pinocchio, this fictional entity passionately wants to become a living soul. With its many self-hoods, this long-nosed puppet is desperate to become the real you."
