In 2013, there are still several countries where women are not allowed to work, or open a bank account, without the consent of their husband.

http://www.worldbank.org/en/news/press-release/2013/09/24/societies-dismantle-gender-discrimination-world-bank-group-president-jim-yong-kim

With BTC gender-neutral, it could do a lot to help them earning, and saving, some money for their own good. The problem is that in those male-dominated countries, many women lack the knowledge to use a computer as they are sometimes not allowed to go to school. There's a lot to do, but I'm convinced BTC can help.

That is a great point.  Places where women are not treated equally would greatly benefit if they could use bitcoin.

In 2013, there are still several countries where women are not allowed to work, or open a bank account, without the consent of their husband.

While the best solutions will be for them to give women equal rights, Bitcoin could help.
However, in countries where husbands retain control of their wife's finances, Bitcoin could probably count as a currency. Also, these women, as you stated, may not be computer-literate.

Looking further, BTC has an image problem, being often associated with drug-dealing and terrorism, if we could say it helps empowering women, that would help.

Women comprise 50% of the population, this is a major untapped demographic, wherever inroads can be made it should be done. I'm all for empowering women.

If you think my efforts are worth something; I'll keep on keeping on.

Sad to say but most women are more concerned about gossip etc rather than revolutionary ideas, chances are they wouldn't know about Bitcoin to begin with (as they aren't as aware of Bitcoin in developed countries in comparison to their male counterpart).

Women are speculators in general from an objective equality standpoint...

Women can't work.
Women can't play sports.
Women can't use computers.
Women can't use bitcoin.

It's just a matter of time.  Wink

http://www.mypersonality.info/personality-types/population-gender/

This gives some insight as to why this seems more the case; most people who are interested in Bitcoin have proven (in another thread, don't remember where) that we're <90% INTP & INTJ, which is very male-dominant.

I'm assuming the gossipy types of women fall under the protector personality category, which seems to correlate with the typical motherly personality; that's a whopping 43% of all women.

It means that every brick is there because a man has put it there, almost all inventions have been made by men and all scientists are male, I can't even recall one important person who is a woman at the top of my head without Googling that first.

Not trying to be an ass but a part of feminism should be to be equal to men in all aspects, not just receive the same benefits, women ought to seek jobs as janitors, garbage handlers and in construction as well rather than complain about lower pay/employment in CEO positions. This is real equality.

It's difficult to understand when women are truly not given the same consideration as men. As a young man I had a hard time getting a job, it was hard going on construction sites and having no experience to prove myself. Women face the same problem but throughout their lives, except they are women so they can be stereotyped and written off. a friend of mine told me a story of when she went to a construction site, with little experience but a willingness to work, they pretty much told her not to come back... why? because she was a woman and didn't know what she was doing.  At least as a young man, the foreman would tolerate my inexperience as a greenhorn, but as a woman stereotypes of why woman can't do things dominate, making women lose faith in themselves when interacting with men... written off and never given a chance.

If you think my efforts are worth something; I'll keep on keeping on.

Women don't bother because they are not confident because men make them diffident because they don't bother because they are not confident because men make...... If women would truly be equal with men they would stop blaming men for their inadequacy, we are all told we can't do something throughout our lives and the biggest reward is always doing it .

Ben Barres (formerly Barbera Barres), claims other neuroscientists rated his work higher just because he got a sex change:


Quote
After he underwent a sex change nine years ago at the age of 42, Barres recalled, another scientist who was unaware of it was heard to say, "Ben Barres gave a great seminar today, but then his work is much better than his sister's."
