While we’re all comfortable being delusional and pretending that the world has progressed and women have gotten their due, there is a man out there who is giving the world a much needed wake up call with his hard hitting letter. Jared Mauldin, a mechanical engineer wrote a letter to the women in his engineering classes about how men and women are unequal and it reveals some bitter truths about the world we live in. Here, check it out for yourself.

To the women in my engineering classes:

While it is my intention in every other interaction I share with you to treat you as my peer, let me deviate from that to say that you and I are in fact unequal.

Sure, we are in the same school program, and you are quite possibly getting the same GPA as I, but does that make us equal?

I did not, for example, grow up in a world that discouraged me from focusing on hard science.

Nor did I live in a society that told me not to get dirty, or said I was bossy for exhibiting leadership skills.

In grade school I never had to fear being rejected by my peers because of my interests.

I was not bombarded by images and slogans telling me that my true worth was in how I look, and that I should abstain from certain activities because I might be thought too masculine.

I was not overlooked by teachers who assumed that the reason I did not understand a tough math or science concept was, after all, because of my gender.

I have had no difficulty whatsoever with a boys club mentality, and I will not face added scrutiny or remarks of my being the “diversity hire.”

When I experience success the assumption of others will be that I earned it.

So, you and I cannot be equal. You have already conquered far more to be in this field than I will ever face.

Sincerely,

Jared Mauldin

Senior in Mechanical Engineering

Gender equality is still a distant dream. The fight is still on.  Courtesy     /        Here’s what the letter read & Comments
