9. Well, for me, personally.
I was raised by a very powerful, liberal couple who took education extremely seriously as a way to a better life not just for their four children, but also for the world.

I was raised in the 60s, 70s. It was never an option for me not to have the same advantages as my brothers. I was the only one of my parents' friends daughters who attended four year college.

The other females in their circle were encouraged to go to secretarial school. It enraged my magna cum laude mother.

I have always felt equal to men. In fact, I think sometimes I scare them a bit because I'm not demure or retiring like the perception or misperception requires.

I hope I am raising my own daughters to be strong. I KNOW we are raising our son to respect women.
