Greta Thunberg’s defiance upsets the patriarchy – and it’s wonderful


Suzanne Moore



“She is a 16-year-old, and these are grown men. And they are terrified. Wonderful. Who knew you could shake the patriarchy simply by refusing to smile for it, dress for it or demur to it? A refusal to acquiesce to the male gaze has these dinosaurs squirming.

Greta, you teach us about more than one kind of climate. Thank you.”
