The irony of women being subjugated, objectified, and abused is that we are largely in control of raising the little boys that grow into the men that perpetrate these mentalities. We are also largely in control of raising the little girls that grow in the women that tolerate these mentalities.
But let's focus on the boys.
Even in Western Society, women still bear the majority of the burden (or blessing!) in child-rearing. Therefore, the mother is mostly responsible for how a boy views women and ultimately, how he treats them.
If chivalry is dead, mothers killed it. Manners, sensitivity, and compassion can be taught. If a boy lacks them it is usually because he was instructed on the fine art. That is the fault of the primary care-giver.
There are two ways to teach a boy how to properly treat a woman. One is by example - the way a woman allows herself to be treated by men and how she demands to be treated by them. The other is by outright verbal instruction.
We keep looking at society as a whole for the continual demise of marriage and intimate relationships: the inability of men and women to have loving and devoted relationships to one another -- the prevalence of adultery. This is one of those situations that demand we not look at the "big" picture and instead take a look at the tiny picture...the relationship between mother and son.
