Yes, Jessica. And here’s what’s worse- as someone who has traveled extensively, we are still better than many countries. This is an horrific statement about how the entire WORLD treats women. I am not in any way saying that well, since we’re aren’t the worst, then it’s okay. NO IT’S NOT. However any study of the world’s history of treating women, particularly after the appearance of patriarchal religions, saw this shit coming a mile away. Recommended: When God Was a Woman, by Merlin Stone. Of course we’re all mistaken. We were mistaken to give our power away to men. Not all are bad. Just vastly too many. Far, far too many. All over the world.
