We always talk about equality between men and women but are we really taking the issue about equality seriously. Every now and then I hear in the news that women can do everything that the men can do and some even says that women can do better then mens so if that is the case then why is there no boxing match between men and women and why is there a seperate team for women and seperate team for men in sports like football, cricket, baseball, etc. What I mean to say is are we giving equal rights to both men and women or are we just fooling ourselves.

The woman can't do everything the man does.The man has testosterone so it has a lot more strengh than a woman and can do all the things that require strenght.And i think the man is slitly more inteligent (in any case in Romania is true).I would not let my girlfriend to cut wood for a fire just to make me know that she has strenght too,she could get hurt :).But when it comes of something intelectual i think she can do something as good as me,but not on IT because this is my job :D

That's what I want to say is no matter how much we say that men and women are different yet we know that that both are not equal and they will will never be equal because this is a universal law.

We are equal in the eyes of God. Equality does not mean physical. When we speak of equality in men and women we speak of their rights, and equal being human. Women are created to be the helpmate of men, and was created from the bones of men. So there is suppose to be a subordination of women to men, however, there are also suppose to be norms that men should follow and under a strict code of conduct should men behave to get eligible for women's submission to them, search the bible for you to gain understand of what I am trying to impart to you. As women of today, assert your right and do not allow men o trample you, or much wort abuse you. Do not allow yourself to get fooled in submitting to their wimps. Get equal with men because both of you are human beings and deserve each others respect. Get financial independence because men tends to abuse women who does not know how to take care of them self, they also tend to abuse women who loves them so much, you know. Take care of yourself

Yeah I agree with you that both men and women should have equal rights but that does not means that women can do everything a man can do and a man can do everything a women can do I mean no matter how much we talk about it there is going to be a major difference between this 2 sexes.

Yes men are women are really equal, in the sense of our rights. Nowadays, women have the right of say, have the right to have a career and things like that. But again I must stress that God make each of us different. Each men and each women are created for a different purpose in life. Men's purpose are different than women. Men, it is your job to provide for the family, and to be a leader (by being an example, not by being a commander). Women, it is your job to support your men, to care for you kids etc. In most cases, women are found to be able to do jobs better than men, but so what? That doesnt mean that men are less than women or something like that. So yeah women and men are equal, in terms of the respect and rights, however, in terms of purpose in life.. we are different.. doesnt mean one is less than another.. it is just different.

I'm probably going to get bashed by the feminists out there! I'm a woman & I believe men & women will never be equal! There are some things that men can do & do it well, whereas a woman just can't no matter how hard she tries. Vice versa, there are things done by women that a man simply cannot do as well! I still enjoy the good old fashion gentlemanly gestures that a man does for a woman such as opening the car door. Some guys tell me that if we women love equality so much, then we'd better not expect such little 'privileges' from a man since we want equality! :(

Men and women are equal in, brilliancy,love,affection,responsibilities,enthusiasm such qualities which are inherent in human body. But There is only difference in physical structure and hence there is attraction between two,which keeps them united to keep this world beautiful and move further and further. Women has gift of more beauty and deligateness where as men has gift of more strength and by unity there is a perfect balance. Women can do every thing that man can do and vice versa but there is physical(natural) differenc which permits woman to do things, that only she can do and not possible to man.Similarly somethings only man can do. BUT,Friends THEY ARE MADE FOR EACH OTHER.

no they r not equal....its a falacy to think so. their hormones and emotions evrything is different. u really brought up a good point.... the thing is that there is a thin line differentiating them both....but that does not make that line disappear. when talking abt physical strenght.... they r both strong...there is no doubt women r strong too. but in a different manner. like men are strong in their biceps....men r strong cuz they can hold their emotions. at the same time women r strong too cuz they carry the seed of life in them for nine whole months...they go thru meenstruation....n thas pretty painful too. they bare that. how can we forget that all that doesnt require suffering.

women and men are equal in terms of human values... it simply means that no one should be looked down just based on the gender.. everyone is same. that doesnt mean men can do everything a woman can do, and woman can do everything men can. men cannot carry and give birth to children,nor can they take care of home and children as much as females can do... right. and females are by nature given body weaker in physical strength than men, thats a fact and is to be accepted.but that doesnt make them less ( meaning in terms of respect to be given)by any means. so thats why there are different sports teams. and equal rights have to be given coz their brains are equal and infact many a time females are brighter that men, though not always. so equal rights have to be given irrespective of the physical strength.

Thanks foe your opinion and I agree with you but when someone talks about equality they should be more elaborative that there are some things men can't do and vice versa instead of just going on repeating that women can do each and every thing or even better.

Men and women are equal in the grand scheme of life. When you narrow it down to certain specific aspects of life there are things that men do better and also things that women do better but that doesnt mean on an overall scale men and women arent equal. Men and women dont box each other because generally men are stronger than women and it wouldnt be fair but that doesnt mean they arent equal they just arent equal in strength. But we have equal rights because there isnt a thing a man can go out and do that a woman cant go out and do if she so pleases and vice versa.

We are still trying to make everything more equal but I don't think we will ever get there. But that may not be a bad thing. We should treat people with respect and judge, a woman or a man can do anything they want to do. But there are still things most woman can do a little better than men. And things most men can do better than women.By trying to make things equal we keep forgetting this.As for sports, men can't box women because ther laws against men hitting women! Football would hard for the same reason. So the closet we can get to equality is separate teams.

As far as I'm concern the equality between man and woman have limitations. Like intelligence, man & women can both equal in this category. Skills and talents too. As to masculine power, I would rather say that man are stronger than woman. I would like to conclude it this way, considering the intangible aspects, both genders could be equal. But as to tangible aspects, there maybe several aspects that men excels more than women. I hope you get my idea.

yes we do always talk about equality between men and women but of course us woman will never really be equal to man, woman do try these days to do more than they did yesturday but they can't do everything that a man can do that is just impossible. I do believe in many ways that we are fooling ourselves.

In this world, where everybody likes competition and challenge, men and women tend to compete with each other. But then, gender issue stil exists in the society if physical activities are involved like sports..
