attacks on women in the media - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Since the dawn of misogyny and female on female envy, there have been attacks on women who would lead society. They range from the idea of "witches" or the dismissive notion of the "spinster" or "woman on the shelf," to notions of sexual purity, relationship conduct or simply can become a barrage of derogatory terms. If the woman defends herself then the "witch hunt" intensifies, such as the buckets of water in the "Magician's Nephew," we saw this with J.K Rowling, with Britney Spears and even children such as Greta Thunberg was at the time of her fame starting. The only antidote that I have seen, and again this speaks to the real position of women in society, is dominant males supporting them, alphas who others follow.
Women can spend a decade or more becoming a professional with a platform and a social mission to do good things for society, only for those who have done nothing to try to dominate them and climb "higher" (even if only for 15 minutes of fame) to tear them down and all they have worked for. These days it takes an army of fans to keep women leaders in their roles, that's how bad the attacks are.
