According to google this quote is quoted in chapter 1 of:

'Breaking through the stained glass ceiling" by Beth Jones, and it is footnotedd (footnote number 8) but I can't get to the footnote.

It is also quoted with footnote 29 in:

"Free to serve: God's liberated woman" by Jennifer Wallace.

I got these two by searching for the quote's first line in google,

Subject: [PW] Martin Luther quotation

I have a patron who wants to cite a quote purportedly from Martin Luther.
I can find it mentioned all over (with variations in wording) and
attributed to Luther but with no citation as to source.  The quotation is
as follows:

Woman must neither begin nor complete anything without man: Where he is,
there she must be, and bend before him as before a master, whom she shall
fear and to whom she shall be subject and obedient.

Any ideas?  I've been trying to search through some of the works but man,
there are a LOT of works!

Thanks for any leads!
