What do women want when they want equality?
November 2, 2017 8:41pm CST
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?

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.
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?
@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.
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.
@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.

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 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!
