Misogyny, racism, homophobia, and economic slavery are really all part of the same picture: the powerful subjugating the weak because they can.

These things hurt the victims and offend anyone else with a sense of justice and responsibility. But that's the thing, having a sense of responsibility is accidental, just a characteristic of people that is more is less occurring by blind luck.

Until responsibility is part of the culture, taught by every father and mother to every child, reinforced by teachers and students and employers and coworkers and random people on the street, there will always be struggles like these.

So if you see something that's 'not right', you need to speak up because maybe nobody else will, and by silently condoning it, you bear part of the responsibility for the perpetrator's lack of it.
