In a lot of countries, obviously. Somewhere like, say, Saudia Arabia, or even India, it pretty much sucks rusty boulders to be a woman.
In countries like the US, or most of Europe? It's... a lot more complex.
I think there is still discrimination holding women back in some areas, but at this point, it's subtle stuff. And there's other discrimination holding *men* back in other areas.
I personally think women face a little more total discrimination and ill treatment on grounds of gender in the US, but the difference is small enough, and the *ways* in which men vs women are treated unfairly are so profoundly different enough, it's like comparing apples and... I don't know, cars. If you care more about how things taste, apples are better. If you care more about getting places fast, cars are better. But for the most part, if you asked someone "Which is better, apples or cars?", they will... look at you in confusion.
I mean, would you rather have people treat you like you're an incompetent idiot whenever you are taking care of children, or have people assume that you are not the one who is shopping for a car or computer, your male friend is? Would you rather have a higher risk of being convicted of a crime, or a lower wage? (yes, yes, the wage gap is very complex, but this is not the place for that discussion). And so on.
Men are better at some things, on average. Women are better at other things, on average. And it is generally the case that, for various reasons, for any given trait men as a group often have a wider "range" than women as a group--for example, men and women have about the same average intelligence, but there are a lot more male geniuses, as well as a lot more male idiots. Women tend to be closer to the average, while a much greater fraction of men are near the extremes.
It's late and this is already a novel, so just try to keep in mind that there's a lot of truth to the idea that "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence".
