I know that my thoughts needs work, but I am working on them.  This is what I am working on:

We talk about equal rights (not “gender” roles) as though we were all born equal, but were we? Now I am not talking about what should be. I am speaking of reality. As I see it, we were all born into the conditions of our various established societies—being as “free” as existing systems of justice and equality are. Once when we have learned what or have gained a perception of how things really ought to be, we can either choose to accept them as they are—opting to change nothing—or we can choose to try and change them.
Now, "Change" can be a long and difficult process in trying to beset upon a society the need or the desire to change—changing to your ideals of what is justice and/or equality.
Taking, for example, from those in power the wielding “equality”—such as men vs women—can and has been a very difficult thing to do—if not seemingly impossible. But some societies have changed—“granting” more rights to its female citizens.
I say “granting” in that it “has been” a reality. I don’t know how it is that in many of the world’s societies it seems that men are in charge of “equality control”—or “EC”, but it is a reality—somehow, in many societies, women have “lost” The Power of Equality”—saying that somewhere in the past, women used to be as equal as men.
So should a woman or women see an injustice in a “man’s world” and would like to see themselves as equally “free” as their male counterparts, then, as I see it, this woman or these women must do whatever it takes to be “granted” this equality—and then to never lose “The Power of Equality” again.
About “gender” roles or “diversity” between sexes—those to me are separate topics.
