Sexist language in this text

This translation uses sexist language.  Marcus Aurelius himself wrote very deprecatingly about “women” as a category, and yet his mentions of individual women (such as those in his family) tended to be quite appreciative.

Rather than try to rewrite the text, I’ve merely flagged language that I find sexist.  In my own reflections, I simply substitute language that is more inclusive and respectful.
