"Feminists have confused opportunity with outcome"

- Warren Farrell

About this Quote

This quote by Warren Farrell suggests that feminists have misinterpreted the concept of equality. Equality of chance suggests that everyone has the exact same opportunity to succeed, regardless of gender, race, or other factors. Equality of result, nevertheless, implies that everyone will accomplish the very same results, regardless of their individual efforts. Farrell suggests that feminists have actually confused these 2 principles, thinking that equality of opportunity will automatically cause equality of result. This is not the case, as individual effort and capability will still contribute in figuring out the result. Equality of opportunity is an important step towards achieving true equality, but it does not guarantee equal outcomes.
