Is there still a need/desire/wish for chivalry in today's society? With women fighting for equality, some argue that women cannot have it both ways. Chivalry itself is a dated concept that has no place in modern society.
Others believe that chivalry and romance are intertwined, and are willing to continue with the status quo. They may not see the unequal treatment of women as necessarily a bad thing.
What do YOU think? Is chivalry alive, dead, dying, or in need of resuscitation?
