>Women could own land and were considered citizens
>Divorce was totally fine and women could keep their wealth and custody of their children
>Wore notoriously short skirts

Sounds a lot like modern society. Except that now when a woman divorces a man she gets to keep her wealth, the kids, his house, his dog, and if she doesn't want to work she gets half of his paycheque for the rest of his life on top of child support.

Not in the whole world, just in 'Murica (and maybe some few other places). Even women in other countries think thats stupid.

except that looking after kids IS work. Being a housewife ain't no part-time job.

Being a parent is a full time job, regardless of your gender.

Single fathers who have custody of their kids however, have to be a parent as well as work their ass to the bone to provide for their family. And even then the wife can still claim alimony from him.

I like to view women as equals, but so far very few have showed me that they're actually trying for equality.

Not necessarily, I mean sure, women can be really sexist, and real feminazis, but a majority of feminists are fighting for equal payment in the workplace, harsher punishment for rapists, who in some instances have gotten off scott free, (which could go either ways for guys too) and respect. But I understand where you're getting at with the whole "hating sexist women" because, even as a female myself, I've seen some pretty over the top feminists. Plus when feminists fight for equal rights they're not fight for hitting and crap, you know how people say "Oh well with equal rights we should be able to hit them", no because girls don't necessarily go up to men and hit them square in the face, though some have, plus men are naturally larger, not all the time, but mostly. And if they aren't, yeah, they should cunt-punt that bitch.

Td;lr Feminism isn't always sexism. Sorry for long post.

actually these are problems of the patriarchy which views and treats women as if they are not meant to be breadwinners and so if we elevated women as equals in the workforce and they received equal pay for equal work, then divorce proceedings would be done more fairly because women would be seen as equals in economic status to men. women get alimony and whatnot because they are deemed as domestic beings dependent on financial aid of a man. most feminists are against these unfair court proceedings. feminism fights the patriarchy which is a system that hurts both men and women because it discriminates and stereotypes both sexes based on their gender instead of their individual character.
