Ways in which Women are not equal

I found this interesting link that proves that women have not yet reached equality. A couple that I found particularly interesting are:

3. When a woman shows confidence in herself, she is said to “have balls”, or conversely she is a “man-eater”, “ball-buster”, or a “bitch” because she was “too” assertive.

12. Women are seen as the “gatekeepers” to morality/sexuality, charged with the duty of fending off the advances of men. If they fail then they were “asking for” it and/or are “damaged goods”. Their clothing/actions will always be questioned to see if they were “leading on” the man at all.

This list also comes complete with relevant links to news stories and sources that perpetuate the items on this list.
