I would say that this question arises another one: haven"t we actually yet achieved equality? Probably, not complete but relative one. Complete equality is fundamentally impossible as men and women are created different both in physiological and phycological ways. There is no way a woman will work in coalmines (quite a popular example) just because she is physically weaker than men. And it is not sexism, it"s the fact. There are more women working as teachers not because women were born to bring up children, but because they are usually more emotional and empathetic, so children feel more comfortable with them. And it is not sexism towards men! There are always exceptions to the rules. Besides, people are different not just in terms of gender but in terms of individuality.
Concerning equality in payment and the situation in working sphere on the whole, well, I am not sure how it works in other countries but here a person gets money not for being a male or a female, but on the basis of its work experience, position, qualification and so on. Plus, candidates are offered job on account of their skills and qualification again. And in theory, an employer has to pay wages for good work to good workers, not for being a man or a woman. So, if you want to earn more, you need to do your best rather than just to complain.
Speaking of taking high position. Again what do feminists try to fight for? Equal portion of men and women on high posts? It shouldn"t work like this. If a woman really wants to achieve something, she will do it. There are a great number of examples of such women. One have to strive for its goals to make oneself heard and noticed. Complaining, stamping one"s feet and shouting "We require!" will not help a lot.
In majority of countries women have a right to vote. That was the initial goal which was achieved. Women have the right to work, to earn money, to express themselves, to move freely, to choose the way of life they wants to live (whether to marry, or to make a career, or both). If to talk about counries where women are quite restricted in their rights, well, then here arise the ethnologic and, simultaneously, ethical questions. Women there are traditionally in a lower position. And it is a matter of culture and religion. If one asks these women whether they are satisfied with their status, the majority will probably answer "yes". As it is the way they are used to living, it is in their mentality. Many of them might even not know another kind of life. So, for nations with great influence of religion or traditions it is unlikely to achieve equality. And western countries should definitely stop peddle these ideas to them.

I once met a nun a sister of the cloth. Now for her namesake, was as I recall Sister Margaret. Now, sister Margaret was in the front line of the bra burners here in Australia. Know this hurts as that noble soul is not with us anymore.

So all I can say is go girl give it all you've got just like you did in life. Back to Sister magrets advice and what her passion for feminism was. This is what was said between us as best I remember back before women that now think more so to the likes of cats and men that think as the likes of dogs.
Was; women needed to be equal with men for humanities sake. But some wanted and still want to be better than men. Now, this is where the family unit's structure has fallen away by the wayside. We have our roles Dad will be the bad cop and mum is the good cop. So until we give the world back to the children of tomorrow then we have failed them all. As a gift is a gift that is justly given away as a gift. You know to pass on the baton in the relay. To pass on the gauntlet to the next.

We are not here for long are we and unconditional love is but a parents. Teach yourself and your children the difference between passion, frustration and anger get them to realise to mean what you say and say what you mean as it is never mean if it comes from the heart but sometimes we need to be cruel to be kind. And never become disappointed as it equals nothing to be bitter.

Peace be with you while every woman is longing for the man and every man is longing for women. Two sides of a coin and all that divides us are 360 degrees upon an edge that is no more then it's own thickness.
