Well, theoretically speaking, men and women should be equal. In practice, it is not the case. In one hand, for instance, in china’s job market, you can easily find the hard truth: male graduates are easier to find jobs than female students. What are the obstacle for the women to gain equal opportunity with men in modern society? In other hand, the society holds more expectations for the male, and men should take more responsibility for family and society. This is another kind of inequality.
If you are a girl, are you willing to be a housewife for your husband’s career development, provided that you have no financial problem?
If you had a second life, would you like to be a women/men?

I don't think there is a single place on earth where there isn't such discrimination, to some degree. Scandinavian countries are probably the most modern in this sense.

The Chinese discrimination doesn't lie within the legal framework, but in cultural tradition. I know a few cases where females could simply go to the court to win their rights, but if they did they would be disrespected and abandoned by their relatives. Social bonds are very complicated in China, and there is no way you can eliminate this thinking in a short time. Much of the turbulent chaos in the young PRC was all about eliminating such "fengjian" ideas, to little avail.

But things ARE changing, albeit slowly. If you look back 100 years, the changes are enormous.

I do think there still is sexual discrimination within society.
But it is not so serious as before.
We are more equal between men and women now.
