Female Viewers didn't see it that way in the beginning, they were outraged by the Prostitution and subjugation of the Dolls. I always felt in the end, the subjugated Dolls would bring down the houses, free themselves and be victorious and justify all that mysogynistic set up, but, the female viewers got turned off early, and didn't stick around long enough for that to play out.
