Woman are still heavily discriminated against:
at the work place ( being objectively paid less than men, not getting same opportunities to be promoted)
at home (many men expect woman do house work and child care additionally to their regular out of the house work which results in double shift)
taking all the burden of the childbearing and not being compensated for it ( maternity leave and support is not adequate, after this discrimination at the work place is almost guaranteed)
taking most of the burden to care for elderly relatives and most of the childcare
It is easier to discriminate against women because there are so many historical precedents. The glass ceiling is well established. People are often complacent and abide by the status-quo. Everyone should work together to end sexism and discrimination against all people. Sexism is offensive to everyone, not just to women.
Even in contemporary American society, women earn about seven percent less than men on equal ground. Yes, women are more discriminated against economically and judicially. A huge portion of rape cases against women go unprosecuted. Single women are often left to raise children alone after being abandoned by the baby's father. Discrimination against women starts at home with self-esteem issues and how they are raised. It's complicated issue when women are often taught at an early age to play the victim rather than standing up for what is rightfully theirs. There are no easy answers, but women are often the most discriminated-against class of citizens in America.
Not in the middle east or Africa. Im just talking here in the west. Men lose their homes in 80% of divorces and in 80% they lose their homes and their children due to bias in culture and in law towards mothers. This utterly destroys mens lives. No wonder male suicides across the entire world are 4 times higher than womens. The amount of government money spent women is 4 times higher. From health especially. Charities support women by over 50 to 1 ratios. Its unbelievable how much more support there is for money in every single aspect of life. Where do battered or abused men go? Or men whose wives cheat or steal or destroy their property go? Where do men go when women get other men to beat them up? Women are allowed to make false accusations anonymously with no punishment at all. Yet can ruin any mans life with these false accusations. In every society or in the media. Women can say anything they like be it rude crude sexist or nasty about men and get away with it. Whereas men say anything and theyre called sexist dinosaurs and lose their jobs. I even saw a chat show once where women laughed about a man who died after having his penis cut off. It a mens show did this about a woman dying after a man damaged her vagina? Hed go to jail just for laughing. The west is spectacularly sexist against men
In a first-world country, women are certainly not discriminated against. If anything, being a man is harder. Feminists make up false statistics to gain political power and privileges. A prime example is the debunked wage gap. Here is an article proving why women are actually treated better than men.
