The takeaway from sexual harassment & abuse discussions must not be that fame allowed those men to harass & abuse. It must be that patriarchy - an institutionalized enabler of those men and ALL men - made it possible for those men and the men we all know to harass & abuse.
Our takeaway from sexual harassment and abuse discussions must be that ALL men have benefited from patriarchy - from the very harassment & abuse we’re exposing, even if they’ve never themselves abused. Because that harassment & abuse have made life hell for ALL women.
Men who say “I’ve never done that” must understand that, as many women across world have told me, “When I leave my house for work/school/etc, I am entering a war zone.” And that home - where men we know, abuse women - is a war zone. Patriarchy attacks women everywhere.
