Patriarchy tells us men throughout history ‘didn’t know any better’. Their misogyny was just ‘of the time.’ What will people say of today’s male chauvinism, misogyny and male violence against women decades or centuries from now? They just didn’t know any better? Because we know the truth – they most certainly do. And that being the case, maybe – probably – they knew better back then too. Throughout the ages, men have been praised for their innovation, wisdom, genius, talent, leadership, morality, ethic. Why, then, are they absolved from the oppression of women then and now?
