What’s wrong with this logic?


It is being suggested that we begin to counter gender inequality by increasing women’s visibility and representation. This sounds something like lessons on marriage:

Teacher: “Studies show that in successful marriages, where both spouses are happy and love each other, spouses say ‘I love you’ at least 5 times a day. So, to improve your marriage, it is important to say ‘I love you’ at least five times a day.”

I think the same flaw is in both suggestions.
