What does the Isla Vista shooting in California have to do with gender equality you might ask?
Before going into full effect with his plans last Friday, the shooter left behind a 141-page statement where he described his plans to kill people and declare a war on women. According to the shooter’s manifesto, romantic rejections by women sparked the 22-year old’s rampage.
