In an article from the Winter 2005 Aquarian Times Magazine 5 lectures from the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan were shared – one from each decade.  This is the one from the 1990s.

The 1990s – The Power of Woman

Lecture excerpts, July 1, 1994, at Women’s Camp  (scroll down to see the full lecture video)

When a woman conceives any idea, it grows, and her mind becomes pregnant with that idea. You deliver and that is the labor pain you all know and experience. What about men? Men do not have the capacity of conceiving, maturing, and delivering. Men have the idea to “go and get it.” They are go-getter people. They are totally different than women. If a woman has any idea that she has the faculty of a man in any proportion, she is wrong. The Creator took it upon Himself to create a woman with a faculty that she can continue the race or keep the race going with grace.

Men need discipline, I agree, but woman needs sixteen times the discipline. When somebody tells woman that she has sixteen times the faculty of man, she feels very happy. But remember she also has sixteen times more destructiveness and she affects sixteen times more. Everything in the case of woman will be sixteen times, both plus and minus.

Technologically, as a woman you have a God-given faculty, and you have the capacity to nurture and deliver. And your effectiveness is in your discipline. There are four points you must know.

The first thing is that you should be your own disciple.

Secondly, you must conquer your mind and act only through the neutral mind.

Thirdly, you must know that every action has a reaction. But in your case, it is sixteen times more.

The fourth point you must remember is that when you are out there, incomplete and not ready, you are sixteen times more vulnerable than a male.

Remember, man will live with a mistake for the moment, but you will live with your mistakes for the rest of your life. Because woman’s mistaken moments are in her aura and arc line. Woman has a double arc line while man has only one, from ear lobe to ear lobe. Female also has an arc line across her breasts. So your actions cannot be wiped out.

Whether or not you like these things is not the criteria here. The character is the question. The best idea is for you to be prepared and meet everything head on.
