Call your husband! (Jn 4:16-4:16)

“Jesus said to her.

‘Go!

Call your husband!

Tell him

To come here!’”

λέγει αὐτῇ Ὕπαγε φώνησον τὸν ἄνδρα σου καὶ ἐλθὲ ἐνθάδε.

John uniquely indicated that Jesus told the Samaritan woman (λέγει αὐτῇ) to call her husband (Ὕπαγε φώνησον τὸν ἄνδρα σου) to come there to the well (καὶ ἐλθὲ ἐνθάδε).  This seems like a simple uncomplicated request.  Jesus wanted this woman to get her husband, since this was a patriarchal society.  Do you think some women should have more independence?
