... but they're
examples of how our society allows and makes excuses for them. They're examples of how pervasive and how horrible it is, yes, but not about how our society can be permissive of it. A better example would be how men often get off light, or are found innocent when tried for battering their girlfriends, or the idea in our society that a woman is somehow at fault for getting raped.
And I still don't agree with "glorify and enable" - that would imply that he's saying that beating up on woman is not only permissible, but a great thing to do and that everyone should do it, and I don't see that here.
