I was thinking about the movie Suffragettes, and how those women needed a vigorous reaction, one that was not forthcoming as they did not live in a true republic but in an oligarchy. How much more unlikely is there to be any sort of wide-scale pushback now, when the government and men in the cities are even bigger white knights. However, what will happen with the next generation or two of men, and the possible advent of a new barbarism? How will the men of the future resort to a physical challenge from women, especially if other responses are not available to them yet, like shaming and ostracisation?
