This is a good example of cultural/systemic misogyny, parallel to cultural/systemic racism.

I would like to see more feminists, especially white feminists who dismiss the idea of cultural/structural racism, to consider how systemic misogyny works the same way. I suspect many would stop playing the denial card. Well, I hope anyway. Look at me, Pollyanna.
