In the Odyssey you see how women are seen as bad and inferior to men. This can be seen with the nymph Calypso who does not want to let go of Odysseus even thou Odysseys wants to go home and the gods command her to let him go, from this you can infer that she is selfish, and questioning the gods about how they take their own spouses makes her look as one who is questioning authority, and authority is almost sacred in Greek Society. You can also see how women are viewed by looking at Odysseys wife Penelope who is always crying in her room. This makes women appear as selfish and vulnerable.
