Women have come a long way, but it has been a LONG HARD ROAD. As a young mouse, i was ELATED to see titleIX 'make it'. Didn't take long to see that it wasn't going to budge 'the way of things' for many decades.
I gasped to hear a female say that women are too stupid to be allowed to vote.
Keep at it gals, and let your kids know that they have to fight to keep it, cuz there is always someone in power that wishes things to go back to 'the good ol days'.
If men were in the position of women today and had the same past, well, i doubt that men can even relate very well. It was quite the revelation when my honey was laid off, so i went to work cleaning houses for cash, and HE babysat our two and another two for two weeks. I think that we agreed on who handled the role reversal better, emotionally.
Emotions. We all have them. Add testosterone as fuel. (i've had testosterone therapy, OMG, OMG, OMG, i've had thoughts about maybe men should not be allowed in leadership, at all, after that.)
