Often there is a need to tribute gender issues to a conspiracy of the patriarchy.
That conspiracy theory is about to end.
In USA republicans are siding against a central issue in feminism, which is the right to decide over your own body.
Pregnancy is a highly female issue and whatever the outcome it should probably be decided by “reasonable” women and not “reasonable” men.
The big test of patriarchy is when women vote 2022 and 2024. If failing to make an impact, and surrendering the choice to a majority of “reasonable” men, that is compelling evidence that there is no patriarchy.
