All people are born having equal political & social rights. Is it also true that all people are born having equal physical & mental skills?
Do you work closely with many people? About how many men and women do you work closely with?
Imagine that you are about to be assigned full responsibility, for an important new project that could easily propel your career upward or downward. If successful, you will personally be awarded a large bonus.

What were the primary criteria you used to select your new staff? Do they include best skills, most experience, works well with others, exhibits good judgment, likes to party often in the office, and other skills?
What were the primary criteria you used to not select others? Do they include lacking skills, inadequate experience, does not work well with others, does not exhibit good judgment, likes to party in the office, and others?
All people are born having equal political & social rights. Yes.
All people are born having equal physical & mental skills. No.
