Women call out the sexism that has become a part of everyday life

While women take the lead for being the most affected by the vicious patriarchal society, men need to join in and hold other men accountable.

Sexism is rampant and has trickled into all areas of life. It is a false idea that women are inferior to men because of their sex. It is a harmful belief to hold that disproportionately impacts women and girls. As per the Council of Europe, sexism is also the root cause of gender inequality. People are put into boxes based on their sex and gender which may sometimes be violently enforced. There are also different levels of sexism. While some are obvious and there is also subtle sexism that could be even more insidious. The overt and covert forms of sexism could be potentially fatal if left unchecked.

 



 

 

The issue of women's safety has taken the forefront following the brutal murder of Sarah Everard. But women's safety is as much a men's issue as it is a woman's. While women take the lead for being the most affected by the vicious patriarchal society, men need to join in and hold other men accountable. Here are several instances of women calling men out for their sexism. It would be in the best of all our interests if men could stop to observe and educate themselves instead of lashing out for being corrected.
