The final and most profound leg of our journey to genuine gender equality is for women and men to embrace each other’s authenticity and strive to work and succeed together, not as equals in numbers alone, but as equals in value. As men and women come to understand each other’s ways of thinking and acting, they step up to a new and powerful level of conversation. They understand and appreciate each other’s unique contribution, begin to include each other more assuredly and more willingly, and uncover the hidden value in the complement of their differences.

Women have more white matter. More white matter creates better liars. Psychopaths have more white matter.

Men just need to understand that women are our competition not our allies. We owe them nothing. We need to start taking care of ourselves and stop sacrifice ourselves for women. It is pretty simple.

Gender is a social construct.

Such an important topic with value both professionally and personally.

thank you ... we need to engage both men and women in the discussion if we are going to generate equity by not only understanding but also by embracing our differences!

An incredible addition to today's critical conversation -- we need gender intelligence, not equality! We're different, and that's where the power lies in making changes in the ways men and women work together, communicate and how companies succeed at the bottom line. Well done, Barbara!

So let me summarize, when women are achieving more then men, that is a good statistic and when men are achieving more then women that is a bad thing. Men have lower brain activity then women and women have better memories then men. Men are jokes and there deficiencies make for good punch lines for jokes, but there is no reason to joke about women. To stop men from earning more then women we need to change the culture, in a way that she does not in any way describe, and hire 50% women so they can use there superior brain power to improve everything. In conclusion its another vacuous moral plea for equality of outcome with no idea how to actually change anything.

Right, I think you are misinterpreting the message, Treeforged, which is that neither is superior, and we should recognize and honor differences, rather than blame. It's not that there is lower brain activity in men, it's that they are genetically better able to shut off their thoughts when relaxing. Also, this is not either-or, but about norms within a bell curve, and each of us falls somewhere along the curve.
