Sure thing Vikings were no better or no worse then others in Europe. They were just about as awesome as Romans. Just about as awesome as Gauls. Just about as awesome Celts. Lot's of awesome cultures coming from Europe. None of them were really egalitarian if by egalitarianism you mean approximation of modern feminism.
The feminists have a bad record of proclaiming other species or ancient cultures as feminist only to get badly refuted. Sadly many people don't hear the refutation and keep repeating the original feminist assertion. This has happened with Bonobo's, with Nepalese, with ancient Minoans, with various indigenous cultures. And now it's vikings turn.
Just look it up, yourselves. I am not doing work link searching work for anybody else. The internet and this forum also if full of refutations about various ancient cultures being egalitarian and feminist. I am not going to beat a dead horse, look it up yourselves, it's been done plenty of times.
The Romans were far more advanced as a civilization. They had concrete highrise apartment buildings, indoor plumbing, aqueducts, philosophers, advanced political and administrative systems, etc. The Vikings had fuck all besides good shipbuilding.
The Gauls absorbed many elements from Roman civilization along with Christian spiritual wisdom, and their Frank descendants were able to take over the mantle of Western civilization centuries after Rome was sacked.
