-More women would be in the workplace and Leadership: Currently, women are not as represented as men in the workplace, especially in leadership. If barriers to their success were removed, the would be better represented.
-Families would be stronger: Men are negatively affected by gender inequality. This is especially clear when it comes to paid family leave. Because women are considered the primary caregivers for children, men are often unable to get time off. This is also true when it comes to caring for older family members. If both men and women were able to take time off for family, without discrimination based gender, it would strengthen families.
-More women would participate in politics: Most political systems are still based in favour of men. If gender equality was realized, the world would see a lot of more women engaged in political process. This includes political leadership.
