This is written in the Hebrew Talmud, the book where all of the sayings and preaching of Rabbis are conserved over time.
"Be very careful if you make a woman
cry, because God counts her tears. The woman
came out of a man's rib. Not from his feet to be
walked on. Not from his head to be superior, but
from the side to be equal. Under the arm to be
protected, and next to the heart to be loved."
