Main Question or Discussion Point

Misogyny is an exaggerated aversion toward women. Compared with anti-woman sexism or misandry, misogyny is usually regarded as directed against women by some men, though women can also harbor misogynistic views. In feminist theory, misogyny is recognised as a political ideology similar to racism or anti-Semitism, existing to justify and reproduce the subordination of women by men. The etymology of misogyny comes from the Greek and means to hate (misein) woman (gyne).

Is Islam a form of misogynistic religion?

Is 'misogynism' one of the founding principles of Islam?

Is 'misogynism' a protected form of speech in the United States?

this topic has been locked because it separates out a specific religious denomination and gender. in the past, topics such as these have ignited some serious verbal wars, and I wish to avoid this altogether in this forum.
