Two things I've read this year stand out when I think of women and equality. Both pointed out that, yes, women are more equal then ever before, however, it's on the terms of men.
Equality to me is about being allowed to be oneself, being different and doing things differently. We are all individuals and we are not meant to live our lives as others want us to. We are supposed to live our lives in a way that fits us as individuals. This is not a gender issue, it's an issue that concerns us all.
