“Our society is sick and it is getting sicker because of the neanderthal attitudes about the place of
women in society that continue to be pervasive despite decades of efforts to change these attitudes
by the thoughtful, progressive and feminist minded. This sort of mindset can be directly linked to
actions by right wing governments who cut programs that help and support women, and the
conservative minded within society who support and advocate these sorts of government cutbacks.
Those cuts are attacks on women and they are indicative of an attitude within a significant segment of
society that women should just shut up and deal with this sort of thing privately.” Rape Culture: It exists and we as a society have to deal with it Fareed W. Khan
