Misogyny

Misogyny is an exaggerated aversion towards women. Misogyny is usually regarded as directed against women by some men, but women can also harbor misogynist views. In feminist theory, misogyny is recognised as a political ideology similar to racism or anti-semitism, existing to justify and reproduce the subordination of women by men.
