There has been lots of campaigns for gender equality, specifically to make women as equal as men. In every part of the country, whether Africa or Europe or America, whichever continent you come from you must have heard or read about woman empowerment. The only question is, "who will teach man how to deal with the empowered woman?" Don't you see how unequal this concept of gender equality is? It should never exist, anyway.

Gender Equality is the next stage in social evolution for mankind. As we begin to look beyond and dismantle gender roles preventing them from being inhibiting in life we are more and more able to utilize the skills and abilities of people in society and grant them the chances at their own happiness and pursuits. Less than one hundred years ago female humans could not vote in America and had little to no say in political, economic, corporate, or legal matters and were treated as subhuman in every single aspect of these matters. This is objectively wrong; there is no way to justify the treatment of any human in such a manner therefore whether it be gender or ethnicity or caste the value of a human's life and their input should be equivalent to those of their brethren when qualified to be as such.

The statement relating to the current focus on one issue over another is not an argument against Gender Equality but an argument against it's management which in turn means that there is no argument in the OP and no justification for the belief itself; the questioning of the methodology is a separate issue altogether and if not treated as such brings about ignorance, bigotry, and a self-defensive stance that grants no one any form of enlightenment on the issue.

Since I like powerful women, I have no problem with women being empowered.
But doesn't the concept of empowering women automatically imply that women are inferior to men?
Empowering women & Gender Equality are, of course, 2 different things.
There's no such thing as "Gender Equality" .
Females = Males or Female= Male doesn't make sense.
