Well, i don't think so, to an extent, but men and women shouldn't be 'equal' as such, as men and women are different.
I don't mean one should be superior to the other, i just think that each have different skills, different tendencies etc, so there is some justification for differences in the expectations between them.

I don't think women will ever be equal to men. But men are catching up in all sorts of ways...

Thats totally true though.
Women have more rights than men, and also put more pressure on when they are treated unequally, while if guy's treated unequally, he's treated with contempt.

You mean like the right to remain silent?
Both men and women have that right, but women never use it....

Not necessarily. And men still have more rights than women from birth. Men don't have to make as much effort as women to climb the career ladder, and women in positions of power are more likely to face resentment from their employees.

I agree. Men and women are different and the differences in skills/abilities/tendencies should be accepted. Neither sex should be treated better or worse than the other though, as they are not better or worse.

It was a joke.
An attempt to say that a woman never keeps her mouth shut, but it was uncalled for, i know.
I just couldn't resist it.
