Fact: Because of those gender rules back then, when the Titanic sank, women were more likely to survive than man. A woman in third class had a higher chance of being rescued than a man who was a first class passengers. On multiple occasions men had been dragged out of lifeboats that were not even full yet. Those lifeboats launched with women and children half-full.

Women and children first were primarily because women are often the keeper of the home and children, however a single father with a child would be granted a lifeboat because that would mean he was the primary keeper of the home/child. I never really thought it was because of any other reason that women and children would be first, but I guess you're right

Gender equality arguments and advertisements are hypocritical. They're majority of women yet if it were true gender equality, it would involve both genders.

Instead of ladies and children first I’d say mothers and children first
