Misogyny (GA , RP ) is hatred or strong prejudice against women. The word comes from the Greek words Î¼Î¯ÏƒÎ¿Ï‚ (misos, "hatred") + Î³Ï…Î½Î· (gunÃª, "woman"). Compared with anti-woman sexism or misandry (hatred or fear of, or strong prejudice against men), misogyny is termed by most feminist theories as a political ideologyâ€”similar to racism or antisemitismâ€”that justifies and maintains the subordination of women by men.
