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 men are what holds back equality.

@oliviawilde old white guys who have been in charge forever.

@oliviawilde In a word? Men.

@oliviawilde Rich old white men being terrified of change

@oliviawilde Men's lust for power, viewing women as sexual objects, and their false intellectual superiority. Honestly, it's pure misogyny.
— Brandon Evers (@BrandonEvrs) February 7, 2014
@oliviawilde Misogyny. Next question.

@oliviawilde old white men and religion

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

@oliviawilde Patriarchy beliefs of republicans
— Brandon Mars (@brandon120) February 7, 2014
@oliviawilde Is 'the patriarchy in general' a valid answer? Because if so then I'll say that for sure
— Harold they're lesbi (@tiffanyseyebrow) February 7, 2014
@oliviawilde patriarchy and all its forms.
— Pauline (@warriorgrrrl) February 7, 2014
@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 doesn't help – women are 2nd class citizens in religious beliefs. Men run the country, major corporations.
— Tony O'Rourke (@tonio_bonehead) February 7, 2014
@oliviawilde Religion…which leaks into politics. And in both of those the laws are written by men.
— Private Buzzkill (@jdwaug) February 7, 2014
.@oliviawilde Men. Indoctrination. Religion. Politics. Men. Misogyny. Hatred. The Media. MEN.

Hold on, now. Women themselves aren’t entirely off the hook.
@oliviawilde women's treatment of other women. Until we treat each other positively and withhold judgement, we're holding ourselves back.
— Emily (@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!
— Duce (@DJDuceSpinz) February 7, 2014
@oliviawilde women! If I want a raise I ask for one! It's not up to anyone but me, enough individuals make a group
