The patriarchy is pervasive and has invaded all spheres of our lives including our homes, politics and work. It will take decades, if not centuries, to undo all the conditioning and deliberate misogyny that greets us at every turn. Working toward an equal society starts with rebutting and calling out people who further misogyny, unknowingly or knowingly. Cis men live entitled lives in a world that's built to cater to them and reduce sexual and gender minorities to objects, people with limited power and decision-making capabilities.
