A Political and Literary Forum
About This Author
Kate Manne is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Cornell University and author of the forthcoming Down Girl: How Misogyny Upholds Male Dominance.
Misogyny is prone to burn the bodies of less privileged women, who serve as effigies.
Moralistic or not, misogyny is not about hating women. It is about controlling them.
