Nature

Gender inequality is the social phenomenon in which men and women are not treated equally. The treatment may arise from distinctions regarding biology, psychology, or cultural norms prevalent in the society. Some of these distinctions are empirically grounded, while others appear to be social constructs. Studies show the different experiences of genders across many domains including education, life expectancy, personality, interests, family life, careers, and political affiliation. Gender inequality is experienced differently across different cultures and also affects non-binary people.

Claim 

Study of differences between the sexes should be terminated because such study inherently perpetuates sexual inequality.

Counter-claim 

There is an increasingly sophisticated body of knowledge on inherent sex differences, whether these are rooted in biology (hormonal role in aggression and nurturing behaviour; differences in brain structure) universal social necessity, or both. If, in the light of such studies, men and women are inherently different, then traditional society, in its broad lines, is natural. The claim that women are oppressed then evaporates and feminism stands revealed as an absurdity.
