Are woman 1/3 of men?

Q: Assalamalaikum Imam, how do you explain to someone the whole concept of women being considered 1/3? of men in Islam? Also, what would you say to someone who does not regard women as equal to men because of this?

A: وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته

There is no such thing in Islam that a woman is 1/3 of a man. In the eyes of Allah (SWT) men and woman both are equal.
Choose your acquaintances wisely. I prefer to stay away from people that make baseless claims. Practice doing so yourself, so you can avoid such useless/baseless chatter/talks.

Kindly go here for added clarity.

Allah Certainly Knows Best.
