So what exactly are we supposed to do when we live in a society (at least in the US but probably similar in the UK) where 1 in 6 women will be raped or have it attempted, where half of all murdered women are killed by current or former male domestic partners; where the vast majority of women have been harrassed on the street (including groping and being followed) before the age of 17 and a lot of that begins at around age 9 or 10; where every week or so another major company is exposed as having turned a blind eye to blatant harassment and even promoted these men, all the while punishing those who came forward to complain?

Are we supposed to just stop talking about that? What’s you recommendation for improving that situation?
