"The women who opposed women's right to vote have often been left out of the story of suffrage, not only because they were on the losing side, but also because it's hard to know what to make of them. They're not laughable villains like male anti-suffragists, conspiring to keep women in a state of second-class citizenship while hogging all the rights for themselves."
In art, in reporting, in legislation, the women and men who suffer from PTSD as a result of sexual trauma are continuously diminished and overlooked. For women, this reflects a much longer history of treating women's emotional trauma as suspect, as a reflection of their innate weakness rather than their objective experiences. (See, for instance, centuries of diagnosing "female hysteria," which was only dropped as an official diagnosis in the 1950s.) As a result, women are less likely to seek proper treatment, unaware that they are experiencing a well-studied and treatable condition.
