I came across a sentence I don't understand. The essay it's from has a feminist theme about the roles of women in Japan. It's the second sentence below:
What I'm guessing is "That's because [women] keep the status quo of men failing to grasp the [social] progress of time."
What is the exact meaning of そのままにする, and what is the role of its object marked by を? Who is the subject performing the action of そのままにする in that sentence?
Thanks in advance for your help.
