Why no opprobrium from feminists for women who collude with sexism?

Consider this video:

It's safe to assume that the video asserts a causal link between (Indian) films and violence against women. (If you don't assume that, then the video-makers are stupid for packing the video with so much Indian film footage; but let's assume they're not stupid.)

There has been much outraged debate over the decades about the sexual objectification of women.

Now, of course, it's natural and proper (and obvious and easy) to condemn the men who perpetrate violence against women.

But what is always curiously missing from the feminist side of the debate is any opprobrium for the women (betraying their sisters) who collude in that industry.
