Woman in most part of the world have come a long way, when it comes to equality with men, but still, even in western society a woman on average will make less then man. Yes, there are exepttions, but in general it is so.|
Woman in western countries though have legaly and socialy pretty much the same status.
In many asian countries woman still hold a much lower position in society then men. They may on paper in the law books hold the same rights, but in real live men are the more importand ones, in their eyes.
China for instance has strict restrictions when it comes to child birth. Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe you may have one child, unless you are in an acricultrael area (farmer) and then you may have a 2nd child, ONLY if the first child is a girl. This law by itself shows that a woman is worth less in the chinese goverments eyes as a men. Part of the problem, and this has been explaned to me by several different people, so I have no actual idea if it is correct, is that the farmers believe that they need a sohn to continiue their trade, and when they where only allowed one child, often the female baby was meet with some accident. For a westerner nowadays this is pretty increadible to believe, but I guess for economic a and traditional reasons stranger things have been done all over the world.
I personaly think equality depends allot on the attitude of the person. I have meet strong (not physical, but mentaly) woman in china, that break the mold and insert themself in private and proffesional life to equality with men, but I have also meet woman of weak mind that are absolutly submisive in western society. These are the exeptions, not the norm.
I think your best bet for wanting equality for men and woman is to be strong in your believes, and work for it. If a guy gets a better job then you because he is a guy, then work harder, untill your boss sees that you are the better choice, if he does not see it, change jobs eventualy.
In relationships, let your partner know that you have a mind, and that you have an opinion, and dont settle for a partner that will not let you grow in body and mind.
Just my advise.
