Interesting op-ed indeed. Do you think it's possible that sexism is harder to overcome than racism because current "gender roles" have been around for longer than the concept of racism?

Sexism is a larger problem because it occurs across cultures/ethnicities, et cetera. Throughout American history, although "white"people oppressed "black" people, both oppressed "their" respective women.
