Question about gender inequality!

Though you may or may not agree, there seems to be fair evidence that most societies continue to be patriarchal. That is, their attitudes, structures and institutions are largely male dominated (think about the proportion of men to women in the Canadian parliament for example). This says something about the imbalance of influence that exists between genders. Perhaps part of the condition, is that in the view of some, a "double standard" exists, so that what's viewed as OK for men, may not be viewed as OK for women. There is some suggestion that this double standard can be applied to the aging process, to the extent that the aging male is viewed far more favourably than the aging female.

Do you agree or disagree that a "double standard" exists (or still exists)? Whether you do or whether you don't, provide "evidence" (i.e. experience, information, more detail) to support your point of view.
