Synopsis:
Men hit their wives; men kill their wives. Starting from an extreme case where a Québécois assassinated 14 women because they took up the place of men in society, the narrator subjectively goes searching for what in the western world enables, organises or justifies the injustice and violence against these women, the patriarchy.
