There would be no society if there were no mothers. Society needs women more than it needs men because women train each member of society to communicate, manners, what is good or acceptable behavior and what is not, individually.
As women's rights have improved, society has improved. The worst societies are those that treat women worst of all. The US also treats societies with the best women's rights, better.
The best way to fix society is to give more women more power. Undoubtedly the best societies will be run by women.
When women get to chose their partner, they get to chose the traits they value in a partner. When a woman chooses them as a partner, the man get the status symbol of a wife and children. Men often gain much more by having a wife, they get health benefits, companionship and sex. Despite all the comedy suggesting men do not want to get married, its a lie. Men get married because they want to.
Men wander around like peacocks showing off trying to impress women pretty much all the time. All you have to do is watch men and you will find them always on the look out for women.
If women are selecting rich men, men will strive to become rich. If women are selecting intelligent men, men will strive to be intelligent. If women are selecting for kindness, men will become kinder. This is why it is essential that women are educated so they can figure out what traits and characteristics are essential to be propagated in society.
Similarly, taking away women's rights is a race to the bottom. Taking away a woman's right to a safe abortion is signals the inception of a totalitarian society, ripe for human rights violation and we have abundant evidence of this as recently as even the 20th century. Stalin banned abortion in the USSR. Hitler banned abortion for Aryan women. Ceausescu's ban on contraception and abortion in Romania left buildings full of unwanted children unable to talk or feed themselves because women did not want to or could not afford to raise them.
Since the legalization of abortion in the US crime rates started falling 18 years after Roe v Wade. Crime rates dropped sooner in states where abortion was legalized earlier. Clearly, if a mother wants her child she will love and care for it, rather than being forced to raise a child she doesn't want. Women must choose the selfless role of motherhood. A willing mother easily chooses to sacrifice her wants and needs for a beloved child, an unloved child is resented as an inconvenience, who often end up homeless at an early age.
When a man sticks around to raise his children, his children have a better chance of survival, they have a better chance at reproducing in turn and passing their genes forward. The mother gets both financial support and the fathers help to raise the children.
