10 Times ‘Jessica Jones’ Got Real About Sexism

Jessica Jones is the new Netflix and Marvel show that everyone is talking about. Not only is it good (which it is), but because it gets real about sexism and abusive relationships. Our hero is a complicated woman trying to take down her mind-controlling abuser who stalks her and leaves ruined lives in his wake. And unsurprisingly, he’s not the only man on the show who has a problem with sexist behavior.
