Misogyny is the Term that Describes When a Man Hates Women or Girls

Misogyny is a new word for me. I just learned it yesterday when I happened upon this link for The New Yorker.

The tag that initially caught my attention was a subtitle that said “What Obama Could Learn from Julia Gillard’s Speech on Australian Misogyny?: The New Yorker”  Wondering what Australia could possibly have to do with the US President, I clicked on it and was fully enlightened about Julia Gillard’s perspective and opinion. I also enjoyed hearing the Australian accent and seeing a strong woman stand up for things she feels passionate about, Her main point was that women need to be treated equally with men.

Here is the link to see the speech and the article in The New Yorker:
