A sexism campaigner took to twitter and claimed that this idea would “suggest harassment/violence is innate and inevitable so women’s responsibility to avoid”, conveying that Corbyn’s proposal would normalize, what is such an unacceptable matter. Furthermore, it is patronizing to both men and women. Women-only carriages would crystalize the prejudice within our society, that men are violent and aggressive. On the other hand women should not be treated as special cases, and be locked away from the perpetrators, essentially declaring that women will never be as equally safe as men within our society. The elimination of harassment will not be achieved through segregation; instead, the misogynistic ideas ingrained within society need to be made
Audre Lorde influenced the feminist movement in many different ways. Like her poetry, Lorde's prose merged social criticism with personal revelation. Feminist in her time only looked at the problems of women from a white middle class perspective. Audre felt that just because you are white does not mean that you are safe from the effects. She believed that because racism, sexism, and homophobia were a part of their everyday lives that they should stand up and speak out against it.

Female sex offenders are assessed with an aim of establishing the future likelihood of re-occurrence of such sexual offensive behavior and to establish mechanisms that can be used to decrease the risk and rate of recidivism. They exhibit a higher level of vulnerability connected to these sexual offensive behaviors. An extensive victimization history and social and psychological alienation are issues that are common among most sexual offenders. Static risk factors associated with female sexual offenders include history of criminal offenses, child abuse offenses, drug arrest and prior sexual offense arrest. Dynamic risk factors include substance abuse, problematic relationships, wanting revenge, desire to be intimate with a victim and using of sex as a tool for regulating emotional state.
Not only women have been objectified, but also the average female reader has been forced to face an unrealistic misconception towards the female body. In Grace Bai’s article Ad Bank Semiotic Analysis: Cosmopolitan and Maxim Magazines we encounter the stereotyped female figure and how contemporary advertising customs create ultra sexist notions
The discrimination because of the sex or gender identity is the largest issue in that case and it was the only reason of denial at the work. The sex orientation is less important here but it also brings questions about whether the women who are engaged in the same sex relationships will not be permitted to access in that rape crisis center and whether they will be served for the situation is another issue
This idea can be seen throughout the book but becomes very apparent at and after the assault on Marjane’s mom. She recalls that “They insulted me. They said that women like me should be pushed up against a wall and f***ed. And then thrown into the garbage, and if I didn’t want that to happen, I should wear the veil” (74, 4-5). This demonstrates how fundamentalist men thought that since she wasn’t wearing a veil she was dressing “provocatively”, and therefore she should be used as an item and afterward would be useless.
Since women could not vote, many abolitionists appealed only to men under the assumption that there was no other way to create change. However, Grimke disagreed and wanted to encourage all people to act against slavery. She knew many women would be paying attention to the speeches only passively since they don’t expect the instructions given will be useful to them. Because of the mob outside the lecture hall screaming threats and throwing rocks, Grimke abandons more subtle, intellectual ways to regain women’s attention in favor of a simple exclamatory sentence: “Women of Philadelphia! Allow me as a Southern woman, with much attachment to the land of my birth, to entreat you to come up to this work.” (Grimke, 191) Three words, shouted over the din outside, are an especially effective way to turn listeners’ heads because they focus on a group most previous speakers - at that convention and in the entire abolitionist movement - had left behind.
Misogynist such as McDermott are powerful in patriarchal societies and they have many extremist views that they believe must be enforced. In the essay, Misogyny and Homicide of Women, Jacquelyn Campbell, Instructor at the Wayne State University applies the Psychoanalytic theory on misogyny. “Psychoanalytic theory, starting with Freud, has strengthened misogyny by accepting the idea that women are naturally defective and postulating that any woman who rebels against a stereotyped role is mentally ill and needs to be cast out by society or ‘cured’ by the patriarchal figure of the psychiatrist.” (Misogyny and Homicide of Women). By applying Freud’s theory to the idea of misogyny, men see women who perform new roles in a patriarchal society are infected by a mental illness and express their hatred towards them. They make sure they get help so women can be manipulated to follow their own roles.
Rape culture is wrong, and as a woman who is sympathetic to all victims of sexual assault I am in disbelief that rape is normalized today. Rape culture is portrayed through song lyrics, TV shows, people making jokes about rape, and people who have outdated opinions on rape being “avoidable”. In the song “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke, he glamorizes rape and justifies sexual assault if the the line between being flirtatious and being consensual are “blurred” or not made clear. Rape culture puts a blame on sexual assault victims, making the victim think it is their fault, and it encourages aggression and sexual violence. Although it is true that rape culture in today’s pop culture is frowned upon, music expressing rape culture can educate people,
