The men that committed this crime are not the anomalies; they are not some rare monsters, but very much a product of the values of society that we continue to perpetuate. That is embarrassing, and we do not want to face up to it. However, this is exactly what we have to do. We must be brave and address it head on. What is required is a massive movement against patriarchy, not a shameful silence and certainly not more pretence.
