Misogyny / Internalized Misogyny

Misogyny, hatred, or prejudice against women typically exhibited by men. It is generally accepted that misogyny is a consequence of patriarchy (male-dominated society), and the term may be applied to specific individuals as well as larger systems, societies, or cultures. Women who experience internalized misogyny may express it through minimizing the value of women, mistrusting women, and showing gender bias in favour of men.
