Does patriarchy exist?


How would you define patriarchy?

Male dominated things

How has patriarchy hurt you?

Not sure it had necessarily had an impact on me that I am aware of.

How have you hurt people in a way influenced by patriachy?

I hope that I haven’t and if I have I am not aware that patriarchy influenced me to do so.

How would you define masculinity?

Displaying a very male image or way of behaving, though in many cases this is a hugely stereotyped image/ behaviour. I think masculinity has changed over the years and has often been confused with patriarchy e.g. Man must be bread winner, or cooking being ‘women’s work’ are no longer universally accepted. It is very much linked to strength in one form or another, but I don’t know that this is helpful really.
