    How to use "Misogynous" in context?

    When people hear the word "misogyny," they might think of a woman who is only interested in men and feels superior to them. This is not always the case, but there is a type of misogyny that operates in this way. It is called "patriarchal" misogyny, and it is based on the idea that only men are worthy of love and respect. Patriarchy is the system of social and political organization in which men hold the most power. This type of misogyny depends on the idea that women are inferior to men and must be kept in line. It is often used to justify violence against women.
