    Please don't answer in a politically correct way. Give your most heartfelt honest opinion.

    Equal in what regard?

    Equal as in both have one heart? Yes.

    Equal as in both have the same physical strength? No.

    Depending on how you are considering the equality, even 2 women might never be equal.

    One woman may be short and another tall, making them not equal.

    Even identical twins may not be equal - in that one likes ice cream and the other does not.

    Without having more information regarding the question ... I must say / vote no.

    Women and Men will never be equal.

    Ok, I can rephrase the question.

    Are men and women mentally, emotionally, physically, etc., equal?

    I'd say no, for the reasons stated above.

    Not only are women and men not equal, neither are all men equal to each other, nor all women to each other.

    What's your answer to the question?

    Love You!

    I think the verbiage makes the question difficult to answer. But, Four quarters is equal to ten dimes. I think without question women are different but equal emotionally and mentally. They bring a perspective that is different to the table that is equally valuable.

    Physically, is a harder aspect to argue. But, I would bet Serena William could beat most men in tennis. I surely couldn't. But, I was socially conditioned to not compete physically outside of certain feminine realms.... gymnastics, then cheerleading.

    But, there are women who are policemen, firemen, soldiers, etc. What does this mean? IDK.

    Women give birth. A kind of strength and pain men will never know. And, l look to my Sisters like Harriet Tubman, and I think that Siesta was a strong woman, a strong person period. How many men could hold a candle to that Sista?

    We can't define men and women tat for tat. Ultimately I think we are equal in the same way four quarters are equal o ten dimes. We bring different gifts but none is greater than the other.

    I like this answer. I would only add that they are EQUALLY complementary.

    Excellent Post
