This week has been a lot.

The glitz and glam of Monday’s Met Gala was overshadowed when a leaked document revealed the conservative Supreme Court planned to take away the constitutional right to abortion. And an actress in a high-profile civil suit was mocked and scorned for trying to defend her right to speak about her former marriage with a Hollywood star.

Although all these things seem unrelated, my colleague Alia E. Dastagir recognized and wrote aboutan important through line.

Experts in gender, misogyny and reproductive justice told her that the Met Gala, the leaked Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade and the public’s treatment of actress Amber Heard during her defamation trial with Johnny Depp are all influenced by misogyny – explicit and internalized.
