    If women wanted equality, it would be called equalisism, not feminism - most women (not including myself) want special treatment, not equal rights.

    In the UK and large parts of the Western world at least, they have all the same rights a man does. Women/girls are outperforming boys at all levels of education and a larger proportion of women are attending university than men and completing their degrees. They can have both a career and children and are often the favourite to win custody battles (as mentioned previously). The gender pay gap is now non-existent. There are now women only scholarships into the STEM fields and girls only taster sessions to get them into the sciences. They have the freedom to choose their own partner and terms of their employment. The list goes on...

    Western women are some of the most privileged women in history.

    The simple fact that feminists don't want to acknowledge is that men and women are essentially equal in western countries. The only arguments put forward by modern feminism fall in to one of three categories:
    1. Trivial anecdotes which can't be evidenced
    2. Disproved myths
    3. Women's issues caused by things other than sexism

    Women have the same rights, but I'd actually argue that they're better-off in society.

    What if I told you there was a demographic that, despite living longer, being less likely to experience murder or a violent crime, and is less likely to be homeless or commit suicide, actually receives more charity focus, social care, healthcare spending and greater social protection than the other half of the population? And when commiting the same crimes, this demographic receives something like 60% less jail time. Additionally, despite comprising the majority of university students, this demographic has access to more scholarships and support programs, and the very notion of doing the same for the other half of the population would be considered offensive.

    This demographic also receives a hugely disproportionate amount of mainstream coverage on its problems, despite most being trivial, exaggerated, or shared with the other half of the population.

    That demographic is women: the most pampered and protected "second class citizens" in the Western world.

    Do you really need to be told about women's rights under Islamic rule?

    Oh right of course, the world stops because the "law" has it written down, and the world revolves wholly around the law.

    You can make a semantic argument that people actually mean privileges but it kinda misses the point

    Sexual assaults on women are far higher, and domestic violence rates are currently unclear because people of both genders don't reliably report on it.

    Sexism does work both ways, but women still get the worst of it. The last stats I saw for my area suggested that up to one in four women had been the victims of sexual assaults or domestic violence, for example. My point was that equality isn't just about legal protections, it's about preventative measures and enforcing those laws.
    Do not use ******** misleading statistics:
