Friends, haters, it is Twitter poll time. What do you think most holds back justice and equality for women? All thoughts welcome!— olivia wilde (@oliviawilde) February 7, 2014
Bonus points to actress Olivia Wilde for allowing both friends and “haters” to take place in her latest informal Twitter poll, which asks what “most holds back justice and equality for women.”

Not quite 10,000 … yet.
@oliviawilde old white guys who have been in charge forever.

@oliviawilde probably men fear that if women achieve equality they'll start to actually pull ahead of men!

@oliviawilde systemic misogyny and sexism, refusal by "conservatives" to accept change
— misanthrope (@nothingrevoked) February 7, 2014
@oliviawilde Men's lust for power, viewing women as sexual objects, and their false intellectual superiority. Honestly, it's pure misogyny.

@oliviawilde definitely the media, misogyny, women who don't fight for equality, and of course men who won't fight for gender equality.

@oliviawilde Is 'the patriarchy in general' a valid answer? Because if so then I'll say that for sure

@oliviawilde Patriarchy. It's what we are constantly fighting to make progress and it's the structure for all things.
— Tiffany Rogers (@VegetarianTiff) February 7, 2014
@oliviawilde thousands of years of patriarchy indoctrinating society. Unequal gender role division is also associated with religion.

@oliviawilde religion and the constant attempts to unite church and state

@oliviawilde Religion doesn't help – women are 2nd class citizens in religious beliefs. Men run the country, major corporations.

@oliviawilde Religion…which leaks into politics. And in both of those the laws are written by men.

.@oliviawilde Men. Indoctrination. Religion. Politics. Men. Misogyny. Hatred. The Media. MEN.

@oliviawilde traditions, cultures, religion, men, other women in the workplace.

Hold on, now. Women themselves aren’t entirely off the hook.
@oliviawilde women who grow to be mothers and don't teach their sons about the inequality women face.

@oliviawilde women's treatment of other women. Until we treat each other positively and withhold judgement, we're holding ourselves back.
— Emily Bokelman (@emilycharlatte) February 7, 2014
@oliviawilde women positioning themselves in the media as sexual objects. It's a thin line between empowerment and objectification.
— Kirbie Johnson (@kirbiejohnson) February 7, 2014
@oliviawilde women! If we stop judging each other, the world will follow suit!
— Vanessa S (@OhSoVane) February 7, 2014
@oliviawilde women's lack internal unity. I firmly believe if women could get along they could dominate the world. Yall have to get along!

@oliviawilde women! If I want a raise I ask for one! It's not up to anyone but me, enough individuals make a group
