    Delete 'more' it is redundant, use a full stop at the end.

    It's only redundant if women don't start out feeling inferior even before they start thinking about a career. (Of course, I can't for the life of me think why they should .)

    Why should women feel inferior? I think that there is a hidden chauvanism that provokes that kind of idea.

    Women certainly shouldn't feel inferior in general. However, when I listen to great classical music, I might feel inferior compared to whoever wrote that piece.

    And, the sad fact of life is that in many, many parts of the world, women are told every single day that they are inferior (to men). If you are told that you are inferior, or stupid, or lazy enough times, you quite possibly will start to believe it.
