  1. Forty-seven years ago a Women’s Equality Day may have made sense. Now I want to know how women are unequal to men in federal or state law, in the professions, the workplace, academia, or otherwise. For example, when it comes to divorces, the law is more favorable to women. Soon there should be a Men’s Equality Day, because most women say they are superior to men.
