What's Misogyny?

Misogyny means a hatred of women. In every country misogyny happens. Women are insulted, discarded or torched by men.

In today's world whatever the men do is everything fine, and if women do the same thing then women were kicked out from the house. Misogyny takes place at each corner of country. There are many pictures, cartoons, magazines, etc publishing year that show many examples of misogyny.

One of the examples of misogyny was a picture of two dogs on the cover page of Snoop Dog's pop album which is expressed in Freedom Writers Diary. That was a picture of one male and one female dog. "Throughout the cartoon, the female dog is called a hoochie and a ho, and they even kick her out of the dog house in the last illustration."(165 FWD) That means female dog was degraded by male dog for some reason.

When I was in 10th grade, I saw a cartoon of one man and one woman who was strongly apologizing to that man in cartoon.

She was supposed to be kicked out from his house and life. When I read the whole story I understand that the man was her husband and why she apologizes for. Actually he had a little doubt about her wife character that she has a boyfriend. However her husband had a girlfriend for like 2 years before after their marriage. But she did not start refusing him. She was as good with him as she was before after come to know that her husband had a girlfriend. She gave him a chance to get off from his extra marital affairs. However afterwards he suspected that her wife have boyfriend, but truly she does not have any. Now for him, he was not giving her a chance...
