Rather than raising daughters to be fearful or cautious of what men can or will do to her, why don’t we ask sons to treat their sisters with more respect? Rather than continuing to play the blame game, we should teach equality and justice, value and self-worth. Teaching love over fear has always been more powerful, and it will get us much farther, too.

For now, the N justifies the mean.
