It's never good enough as far as equality goes. Of course things aren't perfect, but they are, have been, and will continue to be going in the right direction. Look how far we've come in such a short amount of time. Barely a century ago women were not allowed to vote and were mocked/berated for trying to be independent and more than a house wife. Not even a century ago black people were seen as so inferior that they couldn't even drink from the same water fountains. Cultural changes are gradual, and we have come a very long way in an impressive amount of time. You can't expect everything to change over night.

Women are still being mocked and berated for wanting to be a homemaker, however consider that...
