Gender Equality benefits us all – This video explain why men too benefit from gender equality

“Gender equality is not a zero sum game, it is a win- win situation.” This statement makes so much sense yet so few people realize it. I have recently been asked by a lot of people, why men should want gender equality. It seems like a relatively simple question and my answer is also equally simple “Because it’s right”. Why should women or men be considered lesser than each other? Ethically that is a great answer but it’s not a very deeply thought out one.  So, In my search for a better answer I stumbled across the below video, which provides a much better and more rational answer.

That answer being – It is good for men. This video explains how countries and companies with the highest gender equality ratings have the highest happiness rating too. It further suggests that gender equality can get men more leisure time, family time and yes even sex. Check out the video and let us know what you think in the comments below
