The Misogyny is a behavioral disorder that is based on a deep hatred or repulsion towards women and all aspects of the feminine.

There are various problems that these ingrained beliefs of supremacy with respect to the female gender in particular bring to society.

The causes are diverse but are closely related to upbringing, certain psychological conditions such as insecurities, as well as the social and cultural context of the individual.

Characteristics of Misogyny:

This degrading behavior based on an irrational hatred towards women is characterized by continuous physical and psychological attacks or the promotion of them.

Social Consequences of Misogyny:

At the social level, misogyny represents a setback that is incompatible with scientific and technological advances, as well as with the presence of women in the intellectual, political and business spheres.

Modernity brought with it a transformation of the roles of men and women, therefore, it is inconceivable that there are groups that dedicate themselves to discriminate against women and consider them as inferior beings.

It is a problem that occurs in all societies but in some there are even legal figures that protect the inferiority of women with respect to men and the passive role that they must exercise.

Some of the consequences of misogyny are as follows:

Increased discrimination:

There is discrimination between genders through which women are considered inferior to men. This is evident in business areas where the presence of women in managerial or relevant positions is still low.

Likewise, it is quite common for women to be assigned lower salaries than men even when they hold the same position.

Promotion of Intolerance:

Misogynists, in general, group with other men to share their feelings of hatred, resentment and aversion towards women, which is why they manage to spread and fuel these practices that are so harmful to society.

In the midst of advanced societies, rather, the fight should revolve around the extinction of behaviors that threaten acceptance of differences.

Social inequality:

Laws that promote gender inequality persist in many cultures, and this only reinforces the beliefs of misogynists and promotes acts of physical or verbal violence against women.

The continuous disqualification that these individuals undertake against women that can be extracted even from language to the extent that when a man wants to belittle another or criticize a particular behavior, he refers to him as behaving like a little woman.

On the other hand, the fact that there are no laws that protect women, causes many men to feel that they can attack women just because of their condition without consequences.

The ideal thing is that currently both men and women enjoy the same benefits and rights and their condition as human beings is respected.

The annual numbers of femicides are increasing and it is clear that all these acts are not committed by misogynists, sometimes the origin of the crime comes from machismo but they are alarming figures that have no reason for being and that affect those who lose their lives and their family.

Impossibility to achieve peace:

In societies where resentment and hatred reign, it is not possible to live in peace, on the contrary, it is a degradation for the human species to commit crimes in the name of such a destructive conception.
