That's the wrong question. "Equality" has the idea that men and women are the same and therefore should be treated the same. But this is an untrue premise. Depending on what presupposition you're coming from, most people can now agreed (after surviving the feminist movement) that men and women are actually different. Men and women are of the same inherent worth and value. They are both of the human species and a certain set of right pertains to all humanity - see the 2nd amendment. But there are differences that should not only be observed, but cherished. Men are masculine, women are feminine - by nature and nurture.

I will refrain from a long discussion on the differences between men and women - if you disagree at this point, you're starting from an ignorant vantage point that may be incurable.

So, to the answer then. Equality in society has to be achieved by the society agreeing on what "equality" means, and striving together to achieve that goal. Does it exist today? Not entirely anywhere in the world. Because there is no society since the early foundation of America that has agreed on foundational presuppositions. Unfortunately, America has been corrupted by the failing in large part of her leaders (men) to pass on the presuppositions to their sons and daughters.
