Should the United States become a communist state like North Korea so that gender equality will do well in the United States?
it would be a very bright future for the United States.

Ridiculous question outweighed only by the absurd lack of knowledge about our already great nation's core principles and the U.S. Constitution by which we are all guided. I suggest if you can read English that you should get a copy of that founding document and read it from cover to cover.
Gender equality, like all other issues equal protection under the law, is a protected right---especially now that Chief Justice John Roberts, a GW Bush appointee and a lifelong Republican chose to become the deciding 5-4 vote for marriage equality in all 50 states that allows people to have a legal and binding committed relationship with the person they love. It is only the uptight latent homosexual men in power (like Trump or Senator Inhofe or former Senator Larry Craig, R-ID, and former GOP House Speaker in the 1990s Dennis Hastert, R-TX) who carry on the rant against homosexuality---and to them we folks experienced in psychology simply quote from William Shakespeare: "Methinks thou does protest too much."
The United States, our beloved representative democratic republic with a government of, by, and for the people, is now and will hopefully remain a Yin-Yang balance between capitalism (for-profit, privately owned) and socialism (taxpayer funded, people owned), and we will remain very strong as long as this crucial balance is both protected and preserved.
Far too many home-schooled from infancy right-wing Bible-thumping Old Testament literalists calling the shots for the off-course Republican party tend to confuse "socialism" with "communism," which I find rather ironic since it is communism that these same religious-freak fundamentalists end up creating every time they voter-suppress and gerrymander or fractionalized-vote-count their fiscally illiterate and destructive way into power.
In communism, most of the wealth and power is concentrated at the very top with the 1.2% of a nation's richest elites. The movie "Dr. Zhivago" gives a depiction of this authoritarian type of "governing" should anyone care to watch.
Here in the U.S. our people-owned and taxpayer-funded socialism includes, but is not limited to the following: our police and firefighters; the U.S. military; our courts; Congress at state and federal levels; libraries; national parks, bridges and tunnels, our highways and roadways; Social Security; Medicare and Medicaid; oversight agencies that protect consumers, such as the FAA (airplane safety requirements), the FDA (food and medicine safety standards), the EPA (clean air to breathe, clean water to drink due to regulations for polluting corporations, etc.), and so on.
We like the United States just as our Founding Fathers envisioned so back off.

Humpty is right. Korea is a hereditary feudal monarchy claiming to be communist.
Communism is where each person contributes whatever he can to society, and gets whatever he needs from it. One communist philosopher said that the highest paid worker should be paid no more than five times the lowest paid worker. But we know that high ranking party members in Pyongyang get paid a lot more than the average peasant.

North Korea claims to be Communist but is actually a standard family dynasty that has lost its guiding principles and degenerated into simple feudalism. The grandfather might have been a Communist, but the grandson is merely what the Bolsheviks liked to call a "bloated plutocrat."

That would be like remodeling your house by setting it on fire.
