Sexism in first world countries is a major issue that must be addressed.

I don't believe so, women have the sane opportunity to achieve just as well as men.

Sexism in first world countries is still relevant today due to wage gap, a harder prospect at getting jobs with the same qualifications as a man, and facing more safety risks than men. It is a proved fact that woman make, on average, 77 cents to a man's dollar (1 2) This puts woman who are working just as hard as men to a disadvantage. Even to get full-time jobs they have a better chance than women, even if they have less qualifications. (2) Woman also have more safety risks and are more likely to be sexually harassed. (3)

Your forfeit of the round is a display of the lack of proof you having showing sexism is a non-existent issue. This validates my point.
