The two genders are apart not based on skills but based on social responsibility. Both have peculiar pros and cons and they cant help but to live with them. On one hand, those tasks which a girl could do perfectly, a boy might not even imagine how to start and on the other hand, those tasks which a boy has a mastery on, would not even be known to a girl.
Is a girl is really equal to boy? I reasonabally feel, they are not, because they stand on different platforms which lead to different destinations. Both think differently and act differently. A girl acts defensive because she knows that being aggressive would only land her in trouble. That's why we don't see girls fighting on street or involved in petty bravado unlike boys. Girls keep their approach very humble and kind, not because they are so but because they cannot deal with the aggression as being physically inferior.
In fully developed countries like UK, US, Australia, Germany etc, girls don't bear the tag of "innocent" anymore! They have shed this tag decades ago. Have you thought why? Majority of girls do all what they dream to do and there is no social restriction (as exists in India). Why? This is because the laws have brought power to their hands. Being physically inferior they used to lack this power to choose. But the laws supporting the agenda of women liberation have given them power to deal with any and almost all situations. But ironically, the worst hit segment due to such evolving laws is "intitution of marriage". People have started to opt for live-in to save themselves from repercussions of failed marriages.
In India, we are seeing a transition which is marching us forward to the same position. Though world-wide, women are physically inferior and would remain so, but parallely they have learnt their way to gather power by way of laws. Few instance of such powers is S.376IPC (promise of marriage), S.498aIPC, DV Act, Reservation for Women, Reserved seats in public conveyances like buses, trains etc and similarly many other instances could be quoted endlessly.
Females claim they are equal yet needs maintenance as their fundamental right and they accept their inferiority only when it is beneficial to them. Else they keep on moulding and twisting their position to take personal benefit, might that be by being inferior or by lambasting males.
