As a result of the overarching perception and belief system that women 1) are categorically mere objects for sexual and domestic "duties," 2) are "biologically inferior" to that of their male counterparts and 3) are, in a religious context, "preordained" by a monotheistic God to be "submissive"and yield to the rulings of men, women and girls are routinely bombarded with an overabundance of sexist and demeaning gender-based messages from films, television programs, print ads and other visuals, that perpetuate this cycle of structural and social oppression.
Not overlooking the socialization and sexist education that is received as a part of their daily experiences, men and boys are equally affected by the ideologies of sexism, in that they are conditioned to behave and think in [unconscious] sexist ways towards women and girls; translation, men LEARN to enact sexist behaviors towards women and when left unchallenged, this behavior and mindset is normalized into their everyday actions.
But what happens when the tables are turned and a woman acts in a manner that vividly depicts the sexist behaviors of men? WATCH THIS VIDEO HERE from The Everyday Sexism Project and see how one woman highlights the sexism women face everyday. http://time.com/50159/everyday-sexism-gender-swap-women/
