द्विधाकृत्वात्मनो देहमर्धेन पुरुषोभवत्
अर्घेन नारी तस्यां स विराजमसृजत्प्रभु। - #Manusmriti

“In the beginning, the world was equally split into two and from one part man was created, while from the other a woman.”
Note The EQUAL split. #Hinduism #InternationalWomensDay
No. Not created from a man because he was bored and lonely. Woman isn’t a man’s entertainment.
परपत्नी तु या स्त्री स्यादसंबन्धा च योनित:
तां ब्रूयाद्भवतीत्येव सुभगे भगिनीति च।
A woman who isn’t your wife and who isn’t related by birth should be addressed respectfully as “Blessed” “thou” or “Sister” respectfully. - #Manusmriti #WomensDay

Wouldn’t SM be wonderful then?

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
