Abstract: Given an open subset $ U$ of a projective curve $ Y$ and a smooth family $ f:V\to U$ of curves, with semi-stable reduction over $ Y$, we show that for a subvariation $ \mathbb{V}$ of Hodge structures of $ R^1f_*\mathbb{C}_V$ with $ {\rm rank} (\mathbb{V})>2$ the Arakelov inequality must be strict. For families of $ n$-folds we prove a similar result under the assumption that the $ (n,0)$ component of the Higgs bundle of $ \mathbb{V}$ defines a birational map.
