“The patriarchy isn’t going to fight itself”

"The patriarchy isn’t going to fight/fuck/smash itself” is a feminist saying that has been printed on many images. “‘I need feminism because the patriarchy isn’t going to fuck itself’ http://bit.ly/VIO1Yz (via @WeekWoman)” was posted on Twitter by Frances Scott on February 6, 2013. “I want the ‘well, the patriarchy isn’t going to fuck itself’ shirt, but it doesn’t come in women’s sizes!” was posted on Twitter by Danielle Sucher on April 22, 2013.

“Smash” often replaces “fuck.” “Photo: tea-on-tatooine: crowcrow: TAKE THAT PATRIARCHY Well, the patriarchy isn’t going to smash itself” was posted on Twitter by Tatty Bon on June 17, 2013. “The patriarchy isn’t going to smash itself” was posted on Twitter by Lissa on January 11, 2014. “‘The patriarchy isn’t going to smash itself’ --@talkwordy” was posted on Twitter by Lillian Orit on August 26, 2014.

Wikipedia: Patriarchy
Patriarchy is a social system in which men hold primary power and predominate in roles of political leadership, moral authority, social privilege and control of property. Some patriarchal societies are also patrilineal, meaning that property and title are inherited by the male lineage.

Patriarchy is associated with a set of ideas, a patriarchal ideology that acts to explain and justify this dominance and attributes it to inherent natural differences between men and women.
