Why Do Some Men Still Think They Can Verbally Abuse Women?

Why Do Some Men Still Think They Can Verbally Abuse Women?

Late last week, US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made waves when she delivered a speech, in response to a fellow male congressman using foul words on her. And Malaysians will recall how earlier this month, Batu Kawan MP Kasthuri Patto was subjected to both racist and sexist remarks by a male MP during a parliamentary sitting. We look at the issue of verbal abuse directed at women in power by men, and why it continues to be prevalent.
