Do women play a role in upholding patriarchy? Absolutely yes! People of all genders have upheld the ideals of patriarchy for years even though they themselves might be a victim of it. Talking about women, yes women have contributed to patriarchy just like men, maybe not as much, but their contribution is significant enough to feel ashamed of the fact that the gender who you would assume to be more empathetic because they have been victimized by the patriarchy is perpetrating the harmful notions of patriarchy themselves.
We live in a society that thrives on making women’s life miserable. Be it men or women, they constantly judge women’s choices and their way of living. It is high time that we all hold ourselves accountable and stop this craziness continuing a system that has only harmed the backbone of our society.
