Gender equality is something I’m passionate about; or possibly more accurately women getting a fair deal in society (all societies) without having to behave like men to progress, or having to dress a certain way, or having different criteria and standards applied to them. It’s one of the reasons I wrote RenewYou and why I finally decided to licence it to other trainers to get it out to get the ‘confidence‘ message to as many women as possible.
I know too that there are a few areas where men feel disadvantaged, i.e. just ask a male midwife, or a stay at home Dad, but by and large it’s women who suffer most discrimination.
What would a truly gender equal society look like? I’d love to know your thoughts so I’ve set up a Twitter hash tag #inmygenderequalworld where I am adding my thoughts as they occur. Some are more light-hearted than others. Some simply reflect my mood at the time:
Do share your own ideas, whatever gender you are. What do you think would be some of the changes we’d see in a truly gender equal world?
