Misogyny (IPA [mɪs.ˈɒd.ʒɪni]) is hatred (or contempt) of women or girls. It is parallel to misandry—the 
hatred of men. Misogyny is also comparable with misanthropy which is the hatred of humanity 
generally. Misogyny comes from Greek misogunia (μισογυνία) from misos (μῖσος, "hatred") and gynē 
(γυνή, "woman").

Marcus Tullius Cicero reports that Greek philosophers considered misogyny to be caused by 
gynophobia, a fear of women.[1]In the late 20th century, feminist theorists proposed misogyny as both 
a cause and result of patriarchal social structures.[2]

The question is what is hatred? I suggest fear may have something to do with it.
