Western males can change global mindsets
That’s obvious from how women’s suffrage was delayed. Men got voting rights in Greece since 1864 while women voted in parliamentary elections only from 1952. Similarly in Norway, men got voting rights in 1898, women in 1913; in the UK, men in 1918 and women in 1928. In France and Switzerland, men exercised suffrage from 1848, but women from 1944. Other Western women voted only in 1940-’50s; Italy—1945, Belgium—1948, USA—1965. How did men get so empowered?
It all boils down to physique. The genesis of male superiority comes from men’s physical strength. As hunter-gatherers they secured home from animal intruders. As warriors, they’ve fought wars to defend land. Women’s physical frame is crafted to ready the body for procreation. It begins from puberty, the monthly period, conceiving a baby, carrying it for nine months and then menopause sets in. Men just cannot fathom these subtle facets of women, what it ultimately means to take responsibility for continuance of the human race. So the huge gender discrepancy remains.
Men have usurped control
