I am concerned (that's a lie, I'm hopping mad, but trying to be measured and scholarly) about the sexism around this question and some of the comments, where women's suffrage, access to education, employment and general participation in public life are described as "privileges". In no other context, be it Black American suffrage (or the right to buy a hamburger), or the rights of Jews in Nazi Germany, would the word privilege be regarded as normal or even acceptable!
Arguably, driving a car is a privilege which must be earned, not a right. But if some society banned all (White adult) men from driving, such an infringement of their "rights" would be swiftly condemned.
Do we object less to sexism than racism?
