No, women don't. Women get paid .79 cents less for every dollar a man makes, how at all is this fair? We woman have been fighting for equality for over a century. Then socially, why does a woman get arrested and degraded for going out topless but it's normal when a man does? The only difference is that women have breast which are one of the most important sources in case everyone has forgotten, other wise how else were babies "meant" to eat? When the world started we weren't drinking formulas as babies, we were drinking breast milk. Therefore, why are woman degraded and sexualized for feeding their babies in public too? Woman and men are not yet equal.

I'll assume that we're talking about the USA here, and that the BoP is on Con.

"Women get paid .79 cents less for every dollar a man makes, how at all is this fair?"

Nope. Women get paid the same amount of money that men do. However, women (on balance) choose jobs that pay less money. Why? Because women (again, on balance) like to choose jobs that impact society, and these jobs are generally valued less than STEM jobs. This is because we live in an age that revolves around science.

It is actually illegal to pay women less than men for the same work, as outlined in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

I would refute Con's second point, but she only allowed for 750 characters, so I will do so in the second round.

Yes, they do. " In 2015, female full-time workers made only 79 cents for every dollar earned by men, a gender wage gap of 21 percent.". Women are getting more into STEM now, " More female students are taking classes like pre-calculus and advanced biology during high school than male students, according to the National Girls Collaborative Project, R03; R03;and women are earning a near-equal proportion of bachelor's degrees in STEM fields" .

I'll refute Con's arguments in points, so I use less text.
Sources in Comments; not enough text space.

1.The "National Girls Collaborative Project" is clearly a biased source.
2.More female students are taking advanced classes, but this is because our school system is failing boys. Boys don't learn by sitting; they learn by being hands on. This is why society has more female college graduates now.
3.(refutation for round one) It is only illegal for women to be topless in three states.
4. Breasts are considered sexual for a reason; they are used to feed children, and are (and have been for many thousands of years) considered as a sign of fertility.
4.(refutation for round two)Women DO make the the same amount men make, for the same jobs.

HA! Of course women have the same rights by law! Con failed to provide an example of a single injustice to women by law! I wish pro would have cited the female genital mutilation law that men don't have.

As for social rights, I don't know. Not even sure what social rights even are. Sounds like some sociology BS.

The wage gap is caused by the STATISTICAL FACT THAT MEN WORK LONGER HOURS AND ARE MORE LIKELY TO PUT IN FOR OVERTIME THAN WOMEN ARE, it has NOTHING to do with GENDER inequality
