What does this hadith mean, which is apparently agreed apon by Muslim and Bukhari:
Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Treat women well. Woman was created from a rib. The most crooked part of the rib is the top part. If you try to straighten it, you will break it. If you leave it, it remains crooked. So treat women well.
What exactly does that mean? Does it mean that women are different and cannot be changed. So don't bother because if you try to change her, she will break? If so, how exactly are women considered different according (in terms of nature) to islam ?
If I have misunderstood the hadith and it is not suggesting that women are defective, please explain what the hadith actually means.
