As feminists, when we stand together to challenge the misogyny embedded in our culture we have learned to expect to face the patriarchs, the MRAs and the violence and ignorance of men. However sometimes we find ourselves confronted on such issues by other women who will side with the sexism of men. Women who will vehemently uphold, for example, rape myths, to the detriment of every female victim of rape and actually – all women.
In a culture of misogyny in which they too are intrinsically and literally greatly harmed, this can be shocking to us all.
