Is neoliberal feminism the same as traditional sexism?

Traditional sexists and neoliberal feminists have the same beliefs about rape:

1. Names of rape accusers should not be published.

2. Accused rapists should be assumed to be guilty. (In the 19th and early 20th century, this belief led to many lynchings of black and white men.)
