Since God created everyone equally, I think that men and women can be equal despite the physical differences between the 2 genders. I think that women are equally eligible for everything just like men.

Mostly, yes. But differences do exist which make one more or less eligible for certain activities. That doesn't make them less equal, however.

Men and women are absolutely equal in front of the law and god.Men may be physically stronger but women are emotionally stronger. Men and women have equal rights.Now days there is no sphere where women are not working.

Men and women don't always have equal rights with men, not yet. But that will come. Women still on average tend to make less money for the same work as men. Men usually have greater access to competitive team sports, which limits the learning and experience useful in competitive business. Women in the military deal with high levels of harrassment from men, making it difficult for them to "be all that you can be." And there are many other ways the inequality continues. We have come a long way, but we aren't there yet.

Of course men and women can never be equal. Mainly because both have the ability to do things that the other can not. A woman cannot conceive a child without the donation of a man. And, a man cannot give birth to a child. So, that being said. How can they ever be considered equal?

No one disputes physical differences, that should not make them unequal in the eyes of God, the law, the employer, the State.

Men are women are definitely equal these days unlike in the old days. Women can do what men can do and vice versa. I believe that when God created us, He never set rules that men can only do this and women are resticted to certain things only. He created us with equality.

Yes I believe in equality. You are so right most men are physically stronger than women and women are more sensitive than men (mostly) however, those differences should not lead to discrimination against women. I believe women are equal in the eyes of God and in my country the laws have been changed so women have the same rights and get the same justice as men. When I was young we women fought very hard for equality in the work place, so now a male and female engineer or other professional gets paid the same salary if they do the same job. Same with nurses, there are quite a few male nurses here. Same with McDonald's. Boys and girls get the same minimum wage if they do the same job. In my opinion we have come a long way but Millions of women all over the world are still oppressed and discriminated. It is so sad.

Equal? Of course. Different? Of course. Equal doesn't mean alike. Five dimes and two quarters are a dollar. Ten dimes are a dollar. A one dollar bill is a dollar. All are equal and different. Women have strengths that men don't. Men have strengths that women don't. Yet there are some women who are physically stronger than most men. And there are some men who are physically weaker than most women. Both are equally human, and as such should have equal rights and responsibility, respected for who they are.
