"outcomes equal to those men enjoy"
because equal outcome can only be achieved by external (government) manipulation. equal outcome should never be the goal unless you want the government dictating to you what you can and can't do, can and can't earn, can and can't hire.....you know, like they try to do now??
the idea of leveling the playing field is complete garbage. it can't be done, but in the attempt, the economy and various institutions can be destroyed.
what you can do, and what we have done, and have laws to protect, is make sure the starting block is level. that does not mean giving preference for hiring, entrance to schools, having quotas for companies that bid on government jobs, etc.
