New York Times
Here’s the thing about sexism: It’s an equal-opportunity prejudice that cuts across history, culture, political affiliation. And part of what works in the movie is that it does a good job of presenting the ordinary assaults that women, even those with great privilege, can endure simply to get through a day.
The problem is that Megyn and Gretchen have for years gone along with abusive male power. The movie personalises this by having one woman call out another late in the story, rightly saying that if someone had sounded the alarm earlier maybe other victims might have been spared.
But that wasn’t in Megyn and Gretchen’s self-interest, a truism that the movie can’t fully face. Ailes was awful, but he also had a lot of smiling help from the very women he made rich and famous.
