Equality In The Workplace
"Equality" in the feminist context means special deference and treatment. It means that women can still be spared the most undesirable or dangerous jobs due to chivalry, but still deserve each and every benefit due men. It means that women can expect to make mistakes and become disciplinary problems without accountability because men are fearful of being falsely accused of gender bias.
Equality in the workplace is a charade and everyone knows it. The laws even treat women more favorably in the workplace regarding issues of attire, absence for maternity, and for physical qualifications for law enforcement and fire fighters.
How about we all try to strive for equality? Women would find it more challenging than the status quo for sure, but it would go a long way towards making female employees more valuable and respected among their peers.
