I read with interest on modobs’ view on equality of male and female. Previously I had wondered about the role of being a wife. We are still struggling to find that balance in accepting that despite the gender, we are still able to do that job.

I have not been subjected to such behaviours due to being the weaker sex during my years in the IT industry. Not that I know of anyway.

If that other women find herself unable to communicate with me or both of us have totally different viewpoints and unable to respect that, how on earth do I bond with her?

What I prefer to think is that fighting for equality is an uphill task. What we should fight for is acceptance of individual tastes. What say you?
