Woman and children first has always been the protocol used during rescues. Male chivalry is important and men need to let women know that men will be there to protect them in times of a crisis. Women can give birth to more children and as well as take care of existing children.
When it comes to an escape/rescue situation, women have less of a fighting chance than men. Men are typically stronger, faster, and can make more rational decisions in the face of a physical crisis. Because of this, I feel that women should always be helped first and sent on their way to safety before other groups.
Yes, the safety of women should be prioritized over that of men during an escape/rescue. An emergency situation usually requires strength and we have to admit most men are quite a bit stronger than women. Men are usually more intuitive than women in escape or rescue situations, too. Left on their own in one of these situations, there is a good chance that women would not be able to save themselves. As much as feminists will deny it, there is a time and place to admit men are a stronger and more capable.
No matter what differences men and women have, we need to concern about about the result disasters brings. Seem like boom, fire,and others else, both of men and women have no chances to live. Life are equal, no matter about the gender, everyone have the same rights to live from disasters.
The safety of men and women should come down to who is more injured, and who needs the rescue sooner to have the better chance of living. We should not rescue a woman first just because she is a woman, we should look at all the factors than make an informed decision.
I think if we're going to prioritize who gets to safety, it should be based on what/how many accomplishments you've made in life. Like if you made a really famous painting or developed some brand new technology or medicine, you get first dibs on the safety boat. But if you've served jail time for a serious crime or never finished high school, you get pushed to the end of the line. It shouldn't be about gender.
