Summary
"Women's rights activist Laura Bates is no stranger to misogynistic attacks online, but over time, the vitriol hinted at something widespread and toxic. Men Who Hate Women examines the rise of secretive extremist communities who despise women as Bates traces the roots of misogyny across a complex spiderweb of groups. Drawing parallels to other extremist movements around the world, Bates shows what attracts men to the movement, how it grooms and radicalizes boys, the structure in which it operates, and what can be done to stop it. Most urgently of all, she follows the pathways this extreme ideology has taken from the darkest corners of the internet to emerge covertly in our mainstream media, our playgrounds, and our government. By turns fascinating and horrifying, Men Who Hate Women is a broad, unflinching account of the deep current of loathing toward women and anti-feminism that underpins our society and is a must-read for parents, educators, and anyone who believes in equality for women"-- Provided by publisher.
