|“||Belle, it's about time you got your head out of those books and paid attention to more important things, like me! The whole town's talking about it. It's not right for a woman to read! First, she starts getting ideas and thinking...||„|

Misogynists are villains known for chauvinism and/or misogyny. It can be physical or emotional abuse towards women, or it may be a deep-rooted prejudice against equal rights. A misogynist may see girls and women as evil, debased, or even subhuman and mere objects. The level of misogyny can vary from a sexist attitude to outright murder (some serial-killers).
Although associated mainly with males, it is possible for females to be misogynists as well. The female counterpart of misogyny is misandry, women hating men. To put it bluntly, Misogynists are villains who abuse, mistreat, and/or dominate over women and girls.
