Could More Equality for Women Lead To a More Successful Society?

Christina Hoff Sommers

We all know that women’s contribution to society is meaningful and essential. But could societies with more gender equality actually be more successful?

Dave Rubin, of Ora TV’s Rubin Report, says the answer is yes. He says, "generally speaking, where women are treated with equality, we see fairer societies with more secular values and less radicalism. This isn't a coincidence, nor is it something that should be overlooked. Actually, if anything it should be embraced. If a society treats its women fairly, it is almost always a more successful society on every other front."
