      As long as there is gender there is gender bias or some type in some direction.

      I don't think there's gender bias in the USA.
      If there is, it's such a small thing that it'll be straightened out soon.  Matter of fact, the issue is going way off-kilter the opposite way.  Women want what they call "equality", when it's obvious that there are separate roles in many areas of American society that need to remain separate.  I for one do not think women should be subject to the Draft when it's in force, nor do I think women are as physically capable as the man, on average, of performing many duties.   I don't believe women should be oppressed and at the mercy of men, but neither do I think the lines between genders should continue to be blurred like many corners of American society attempt to do.

    My country is secular and i'm confident that soon there will be no bias.

    The US is an interesting case, because I really think from a legal perspective that we are very close to a gender-equal society, but from a cultural perspective we still have plenty of issues with gender bias and sexism. They're not as obvious or pronounced as, say, Afghanistan or Ethiopia, but they're still very much present both at individual and societal levels.

      Depends really, in some cases it is, in some it isn't. But, this goes for both sides of the fence. I haven't noticed gender discrimination at the work place on the side of the females, but perhaps it's because of where I've worked or something.

      I've always disliked the fact that because something is hanging between my legs means that I pay higher car insurance, that part bothers me. hmm

        The bias at work usually shows itself in the rate of pay, there is still not complete pay equity between men and women.

        And women also have to pay more for a haircut even if their hair is as short as a man's.

        I guess men pay more car insurance because of statistics.

          Not just salaries and haircut! Clothing - more expensive than men's!
          Shoes! Underwear! Everything! And quality is worse, that's what pisses me off! Less money - more to spend if you please! Nor fair! Why the h* do I have to work 2 jobs? Just because I statistically live longer?

    gender roles, gender politics, gender bias..

    they all exist somewhere, I suppose it depends on how much you believe in them yourself and who you choose to be around.

    The highest biased countries are religious and see woman as nothing more than man's tool to do as he pleases with.

    The U.S. has the best(lowest) bias between men and women to date. It's not how the history has played, but in today's society is all about equality between genders.

    Gender bias is very much alive in my country...

    Beautiful women get all the attention, while we handsome men are called names like 'metrosexual'.

    I do think there is still some gender bias in the USA.  I know women are still paid less than men in equivalent white collar positions, most often in smaller companies, smaller towns.  That's the one gender bias/inequality that is quite male driven, and quite unfair.

    Beyond that, I agree with Brenda.  Male - Female, different genders, a good thing, a beautiful thing.

      Why must everybody be treated equally anyway? I mean when you have female fire fighters because they must stick to a quota, the world really has gone mad. It's not a job a woman should be doing, just like they shouldn't be serving in the army. Women are not built for it. I have no problem with women being president because gender doesn't handicap anyone from doing that job. Surely at some stage common sense comes into play.

    Yes, there is gender bias in the US.  It's not as blatant, but it's still there.  You may not be able to see it, but it can be felt when you're in the situation.  It is still active.

    I'm in Saudi Arabia, I don't think that there is a country out there with a worst bias against women,

    can't drive

    Have to cover head to foot

    Can't travel out of country without husband/fathers permission

    Can't be alone with men who are not a direct relative (brother father)

    Can't work in most places

    Schooling is different to the men

    Marry who you are told to marry - at ANY age!

    There is still a gender related pay gap in the UK, I believe - women very often do not earn as much as men, for doing the same job.
