I do not believe, in this day in age, it is a matter of "equality." It is more a matter of "equivalency." A male and female have a natural equivalency in their respective gender fundamentals; what whatever they may be depending on the person(s) in question. In nature, men hold a natural superiority in certain areas just and females do when compared to men. Though there are exceptions to just about every rule I can think of, Men and Women are two sides of the same coin. No matter how much humankind might want to defy that "rule," in the end, nature always wins whether we want to accept it or not.
