No, women aren't fully equal. They still face discrimination in fields such as politics and science and engineering and many others. And yes, we do want to be equal, or at least most of us do. And I would wager to say that we'd be fine with paying if we could have true equality. But actually, do you know where that whole paying for dates thing comes from? It's because when it was established, women didn't have as many opportunities to make nearly as much money as men. So really, even that has it's roots in patriarchal and misogynistic societal standards. Now, the reason that still persists is because many people are still raised to adhere to traditional gender roles. I assure you that any actual feminist would be perfectly happy to split the cost evenly.4
