I always thought a woman was superior. In my family, my mother told us all what to do. She bossed my father and us three boys. Whenever I asked my father for something, he would say go ask your mother. But I just saw a news report that said that women won't be equal to men for at least 100 years. What exactly do women want when they want to be equal?

Exactly what @andriaperry says, sames salaries for identical works, same opportunities, that is all for me. Men and women are not created identical, but the rights must be the same.

Yes, women should never be second class citizens as they should be able to do whatever job they want and get paid the same. Where I worked there were a number of women salespeople and we were all paid 10% commission on whatever we sold. One woman was an exceptional salesperson and beat many of the men in sales.

@1hopefulman Most of the time Manager women are paid less than men with the same position. It is well known that even actors are paid more than actresses. This is a shame, they do the same work, they deserve the same salary.

To not be looked down at. I don't mind cooking and cleaning and keeping a happy home. But if I want to work in the corporate world, I should have that option, many still don't.

Here, women are everywhere, even as firefighters, bus-drivers, police-persons and construction. I saw a woman using a heavy-piece machinery on a construction site the other day.

If I had a business I would gladly give you equal pay and equal rights as long as you did equal work. Here, there is an election going on for mayor and one is a man and one is a woman and they are neck and neck. What do you mean equal rights?

@1hopefulman Maybe I should have said equal opportunity, say for the same jobs. O have a motto, "I never ask anyone to work harder than I do." And I have not found one woman that would or could keep up with me.

Equal pay, seen as an equal in strength, intelligence, and power. And really it is just respect. We want respect.

@digiguru Why do you think that my question gives the wrong idea? Women are asking for equality and I wanted to understand the issue better? And by the way, women are very different then men, in anatomy, in the way they think and the way they act. So, if I want to understand them better, why not ask them? As far as I know, many things existed before woman came into existence.

Perhaps in the future fathers will not be able to say that because mommy is at work. All the time.

Unfortunately there are still countries that consider women inferior in the society. There are countries where women aren't allowed to play sports are sports are just for men. There are countries where they don't hire women executives because they don't believe women can handle the job better than a man. And I think most countries still don't see women as a capable leader of their country.

@toniganzon There doesn't seem to be such problems here but I know that there are countries where women are not treated equally.

@1hopefulman We don't have that problem here in my country either but I read articles on BBC about those kinds of problem in other countries. In fact my country is the very first country to have a female president and that was in 1987.

@toniganzon There is progress in the treating of women in some places but in this world there is a long way to go but it will eventually happen in the next world.

Bless you for your attitude and appreciation for your mom. I think people who think women superior to be in the minority though. I think, globally at least, women usually get treated as second-rate citizens. In the US. it's not something I see everyday. My personal thoughts? Stereotypically men are better at some things, and women are better at some things. Of course, not all men and women, all the time. It seems like their respective strengths and weaknesses balance each other out pretty well. You need both... so to me... they are both equally valuable and should be treated as equals. Can't speak for all women but the equality thing- I think it asking for equal pay for similar work, and maybe equal division of both parties doing house chores in the case where both parties work outside of the home.

i, as a woman, would want equal salary and equal work conditions. of course there are some professions suitable for men, but then, women can still perform in a man's world.

Nothing wrong with wanting that! There is one job that women have that I would never want and that is getting pregnant.

it is because we women have the female hormones, the uterus, and the capacity to get pregnant, a feat that no man can ever do and have.

Why did that news report say so? I thought equality between men/women has been the norm everywhere now.

I asked the question to get some feedback on the issue and to see where women are not being treated equally. I see women here, everywhere, working in every occupation under the sun. Where I worked we had women that did the same job I did and we were all paid the same when it came to what we did. I worked as a salesperson. Here is the article I saw!
The World Economic Forum says the gender gap has widened for the first time in their records in 2017.

Men and women were created different but both are loved by God and he appreciates both when they follow his will. Jesus treated both women and men with respect, and he had many female friends

And both men and women are chosen for heavenly life where they become a new creation where they are neither male nor female.
