Wherever they came from, over the centuries the rules were used in many parts of Asia to discourage women from being ordained.
to be present at nuns’ ordination to stop women from being ordained.

He said that allowing women into the sangha would cause his teachings to survive only half as long –- 500 years instead of a 1,000.

"In Asia, nuns' orders are working for better conditions and education, but in many countries, they have a long way to go.
Ananda was still a child when the first nuns were ordained, for example, so he couldn't very well have been on hand to advise the Buddha. The most significant of these rules are called the Eight Garudhammas ("heavy rules").Buddhist doctrines on the enlightenment of women are contradictory.There is no one institutional authority that speaks for all Buddhism.If there are no living ordained nuns, according to the rules, there can be no nun ordinations.This effectively ended full nun ordination in the Theravada orders of southeast Asia; women there can be novices only.
