Do you think pop culture subconsciously promotes patriarchy?

I have always wondered why fairy tales only have damsels in distress. I have always wondered why in Hollywood, most times the main character is a male. I have always wondered why the female musicians who are on top only sing music that paints the picture of the fairer sex. Is this a well-thought-out strategy to make sure women are always discriminated against?

    Gender gap in the sporting world
    Since sports like weightlifting and boxing are thought to be ‘masculine‘, families are usually reluctant when it comes to promoting the interests of women in these male-dominated sporting activities. Any discussion on Indian popular culture is incomplete without talking about cricket. While men’s cricket has seen more than 10 IPL seasons, a platform that has helped in spotting talent at the grassroot level and building a strong cricketing community, women’s cricket is yet to have its first IPL season.
