Even in the new Millennium, the second Millennium, and now that it is the 21'st Century, it is still mostly up to the man to initiate the pursuit, make the first move, chase and pursue the woman, and ask her out on a date. Women very rarely pursue and chase Men, and ask them out, so rare that it seems like never. Anyway, I was wondering if I have a valid point here as to why it is still up to the man to take the lead and initiate things. "It is traditional, and since our culture and society has made that the status quo, and why would women risk rejection when they can let all the men come to them? They can get away with doing nothing, so of course they are going to get away with it". Is this a reason why women don't take the initiative that often?

They don't take the initiative either because it's easier and/or they like men who have the courage and confidence to make an approach. Those two traits, especially confidence are irresistible to women.
However, I also find it disturbing how women do NOT initiate or rarely do. Since we're living in a post-industrial, 'democratic' society in which social liberal ideals like feminism came about, we should see a greater variety of actions come out from women and not just in regards to job opportunities. If they want to measure up to a true level of equality then they should take more initiative in social situations more often. I'm disgusted with double-standards that are often overlooked in this 'society' and are never given they attention they deserve.
Also, if you really want women to approach you, maybe you should look at yourself. Be more presentable and I'm not just talking about your appearance and how you dress, but your body language. Make yourself look more receptive and I'm sure that the girls will read it and may take the initiative.2
