Michelle Smith has previously received funding from the Australian Research Council. Instead, she proposes — as feminists have consistently maintained — that a patriarchal society can be as harmful and destructive for individual men as it can be for women. She traces how gendered inequalities in the way we socialise children at home and via pop culture directly shape harmful adult behaviours. Her point is not that there is no pleasure to be had for a woman cohabiting with a man. This work happens regardless of whether women are consistently fighting for help with washing the dishes or changing nappies, or have begrudgingly accepted that the unending cycle of housework is their burden to shoulder. Read more: Friday essay: talking, writing and fighting like girls. Short of raising a child in the wilderness, far from an internet connection, television signal or cinema complex, children are inducted into gender norms by the popular culture they consume.
