Unhae Langis asks: "Can anyone direct me to an early modern source that 
presents this same idea [on female inferiority] but from the late 
1500s/early 1600s rather than mid-1600s?"

For a useful introduction and gateway to primary source material, check 
out THE RENAISSANCE NOTION OF WOMEN (1980) by Ian Maclean:

Good luck,
