Does Judaism see Jewish woman as more down to earth,
regarding money (their support) more in a more physical way then men (the supporters),
clearing about their support more then religious questions?

I thought so but @mevaqesh made me question my understanding.

(Sources which seem to show this
Rashi on beraishis 34.3.  

Rambam teshuva 10.1,5.

The idea that you need to support with your things your wife more then you can afford since she is trusting on you (and not Hashem directly) , but you yourself should trust Hashem directly.
Pischai Teshuva Even Haezer 2.6  that the girl needs to understand that Torah brings good in to this physical world (IE money) and if she does not, she will not let her husband learn, so the physical is very important to women).

If I remember more examples I will b"n add some

    Regarding the utter irrelevance of that Rashi, see here. – mevaqesh Jan 9 '17 at 22:27

    This asks about Judaism's view. What sort of proofs are you looking for? How are we supposed to differentiate Judaism's view on this (which may or may not exist) from those of individual Jews? – mevaqesh Jan 9 '17 at 22:28

    I am not sure how being respected makes you the spokesman for all of Judaism. (BTW the word is 'specific' not 'sposific'; consider using a spell-checker). | This question is different form many others, since Judaism doesn't necessarily have an expressed opinion on the matter; unlike, for example a halakhic question. | are the example [sic] not that they want the phisical [sic] now, and that the spiritual detail [sic] get easily forgettin [sic] by them Rather than asking me, why not find the sources yourself, and see whether this is the case; even editing in a source would help. – mevaqesh Jan 9 '17 at 22:37

    To repeat, Rambam did not think of women as being equal. However there is no reason to think of that as his Judaism based opinion, any more than his disbelief in Uranus. Both beliefs of his were shared by pretty much everyone in the world at the time. The latter is universally accepted today, in spite of his contrary view. Many would similarly view the former view. – mevaqesh Jan 10 '17 at 5:52
