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.
Moralistic or not, misogyny is not about hating women. It is about controlling them.
Misogyny is prone to burn the bodies of less privileged women, who serve as effigies.
