If you're the defense attorney for a rape case, you want as many of the jurors as possible to be politically conservative women. That is the group most likely to disbelieve an alleged rape victim.
Women can't quite be part of the patriarchy, no matter how rich or white or straight or able-bodied they are. But they sure can enforce the patriarchy, and have huge incentives to do so.
