Misogyny

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Misogyny (similar to Misandry) is a type of discrimination that refers to the discrimination of female people (women). Misandry, a similar term, refers to discrimination of men.

A misogynist is a person who hates women. Misogynists hate women because they believe there is something wrong with them, such as being stupid, dirty or evil. The opposite of being misogynistic is being anti-sexist or misandrist.[1]

There are some communities that have been described as misogynist such as the manosphere.[2]
