How am I supposed to get behind the idea that women are downtrodden when things like this happen all the time and then next week I have to listen to someone on the news complaining that women have it so terrible.
In North America women do life a pretty awesome life compared to millions of women who live in war torn countries where rape is used as a weapon.
However, I must remind you that reproductive rights such as birth control and abortion are still under debate, an issue that men should contribute their opinion but not be leading the decision making.

On a seemingly not so serious matter, sex toys, mostly used by women, have only recently (as in two years ago) been deemed legal in a few states. This may not be an out right cry in the "war against women", but as women are the typical users of this product, I would say that there is an underlying issue with women having pleasure.
I also don't condone what was done to Matthew McConaughey. I understand that if certain roles were reversed in such situations, it would be far from funny.
