True Equality

Equality is neither male nor female, it has less to do with gender.

I saw feminist author Betty Friedan speak to a group in Princeton about equality and feminist issues that she cared about very much.  After all, Friedan arguably started the movement with publication of The Feminine Mystique.  Afterwards, she told a small group of us that equality is not about male or female or for that matter any gender at all.  I came away with a new appreciation for everyone’s ability to have equal access to work, education, social and military based on their skills and their desire not their gender.
