This piece isn’t about women being at fault for sexism, nor is it about women needing to take more responsibility for sexism. Systemic problems must have systemic solutions. System problems impact everyone living under that system, regardless of gender. That’s all this is about. You’ll note many of my examples of toxic femininity in this piece come from men.
