Why can’t men see gender inequality?

This article asks: Are men stupid or ignorant? Men definitely need to be educated about bias and discrimination to be able to see it. Here is an excerpt:

“Many intelligent men have a hard time stomaching the idea that the world of work still isn’t fair. Not long ago, I was one of them. Some men ignore gender inequality altogether. Others make excuses: “We have lots of opportunities for women. They just keep leaving to have kids.” That’s not what the new study shows. In reality, women are less likely to leave their organizations than men—especially in leadership roles. Women in senior vice president roles are 20% less likely than men to leave, and women in the C-suite are nearly half as likely as men to leave. And women without children are less motivated to reach the top: mothers report 15% higher interest in becoming a top executive.
