We're barely mentioned throughout history because we were just property. Ironically the same men who erased now complain that we didn't contribute to society. The fucking clownery.

didn't contribute to society.

If men weren't being cooked dinner they would have had to do it themselves, and never would have invented anything.

Women are the literal backbone of society and NOTHING can happen without us.

Yes, there were female inventors who also contributed. But I don't want to downplay how important care work is. Someone has to do it, we can't just not eat or not have clothes to wear or just not take care of babies, sick people, and the elderly. The women who had the opportunities to invent and create also could only do so because their labor was outsourced to lower class women.

I can't believe how much men devalue that kind of labor. It is what the entire world is built upon. Literally nothing can happen without us.

I mostly agree but I would write this in past tense. Because nothing could happen without us, but hopefully in the future that kind of labour will be done by everyone equally so that women don't have to waste their time in an unending cycle of cleaning up after others. Even better, I hope we'd put more effort into creating cleaning robots rather than sex robots, now that's a real fantasy
