As soon as we can get women to break the glass ceiling. As soon as we convince women whom allow men to control that its not something that is ok for them to do so. As soon as we can keep religion from creeping into politics and education or as soon as we can eliminate religion as a whole. A serious woman's strike would be a good way, but there are plenty of women who would resist being free because there belief system demands they be obedient. Prevent kids from being forced into religion.
At work there has been a recent emphasis on Lean-In, a term coined by Cheryl Sandburg of google and FB fame. The simplest synopsis is that we need to get women to sit at the table, find ways to open things up so that women feel comfortable about moving up, look at how we word things so as to not exclude women. Anyone else who can, please feel free to expand on this.
We also need to look at what we are teaching out kids, make sure that they know that know one has the right to decided what we do with our bodies. Proper Education starting in early childhood and less separation by gender could also bring about better inclusion.
And one last thing take away viagra and have someone show that allowing it while denying women rights to decide their own reproductive choices. Because these guys are essentially saying women must be subservient to men and produce their off spring.
"One's body is inviolable, subject to one's will alone."
This really speaks to me. I gave up on god when I was a teen and have always been anti-authoritarian to the core of my being. But recent;y I joined the Satanic Temple, and this one of the 7 tenets was a major reason why.
I strongly believe that people have the right to choose what they do with their own bodies; whether that's abortion, getting pregnant and carrying to term, getting fixed, using substances, body modifications, steroid use, transitioning, sex of different types, or anything else. And I like to start from the assumption that people are capable of making informed decisions about their health and wellbeing even if they are not the decisions I would make for myself.
It seems to me that the same people who wish to restrict women's ability to access safe and legal termination of pregnancy or bith control and contraceptives, often also wish to stop trans people from recieving medical treatment, and stop people from getting tattooed, and stop people from using drugs, and stop people from accessing or making certain music or types of media that offend them, and so on. These people seem obsessed with controling others behaviors.
Of course the question becomes how much is their religion and it's moralist authoritarianism and hegemony the cause, and how much is it just the conveinient excuse for these controling behaviors.
Not to be a prick here but I think it's been made clear that they won't and women will have to take enough control to set rules, restrictions, or precedent that mandate women have control over their own bodies. White men at least in America have since the end of slavery gone down hill on equality for every single race or sex dispute and the corruption of government hasn't helped in the least. So, kind of a downer but you'll have to take it but I do wish you luck.
When those types of men realize that they do not have to be insecure about women, thus feeling the need to control them. That maybe they feel useless compared to women since they don't have as great a role, and therefore importance, in the development of the human species. Women do so much. They carry the child, give birth to the child, nurture the child, raise the child, educate the child(unless it's a boy, then men teach the boy to be a man), they care for the child. Even in our later years, it is the elder women who still care for the children, not the men. The men are there for the defence of the tribe and heavy labor. I feel that some men have this feeling of inadequacy when compared to women. Therefore, they control them.
My guess? Best case, 20 years.
It's possible, in two or three generation shifts in overall public perception there might be enough of a regression towards the middle on the issue on both sides to facilitate effective compromise, and enough of the oldest generation currently holding a statistically significant amount of both overt and covert political influence throughout all three branches may die or retire during a less misogynistic administration and be replaced with more reasonable people. I personally don't believe this is an issue that should be up for discussion at all and systemic change should have happened a long time ago, but this country was founded upon and revolves around the idea of compromise for the greatest possible good of everyone involved, and that no one person or insular group of people should be able to unilaterally determine what the greatest good means. Of the People, By the People, For the People.
Government office is not supposed to be a position of power or place of authority, it is supposed to be a duty and service of the highest possible priority to both the community and the people within it. But complacency and toxic political strategies often make governments insular and out-of-line with the actual needs of the people. And the more disparate voices cry out for individual changes the weaker the collective voice becomes, until we are all fringe communities fighting each other for the scraps of political agency offered by the ruling class, who were never truly of one mind or one purpose but understand the power of intentional downstream resource scarcity and cooperative economic strategies.
Also, these issues are stalls used to slow down progress from the other side when an election loss is expected. The Democrats can't pass new laws if they're too busy repealing old laws for four years. And by then everyone will be mad at them for spending our dwindling national resources on trying to repeal old laws the Republicans can get back in and dig in a little bit further. Back and forth over and over until no one remembers well enough to realize both sides of the aisle are infected with the problem members operating to maintain the status quo for the class as a whole.
Some atheists are pro-life but this largely breaks on religious lines and the USA is trending secular. I don't expect abortion to be much of a political issue in two generations (still too long, sorry) then maybe we'll really look at decreasing evil abortions through education.
Women should have full rights to the kitchen.
(FYI, this is not saying "Women's only rights should be those found in the kitchen.", nor is it reducing the rights of women in any way. It is an affirmation of proper rights that already exist, just for idiots who don't comprehend sentences written at an elementary school grade-level. I am not against women, or anything. Calm down and read a book so you have less issues with literacy.)
