The Macquarie dictionary (Sixth Edition 2013) defines misogyny as:

noun 1.  hatred of women.

  1. entrenched prejudice against women.

OHPI stands against misogynistic speech made online particularly on social media. In particular, we campaign against rape jokes, threats and intimidation, slut-shaming, cyber-mobbing a woman to push her out of the discussion, and revenge porn.

CAMPAIGN (MAY 2020) – COMBATING ONLINE MISOGYNY

During the month of May we will be running a special campaign to combat online Misogyny.  The campaign aims to increase the focus on preventing this particular area of online hate. Special donations can be made to support this specific campaign and are welcome at any time.

Below is a list of our publications documenting, reporting and highlighting instances of online misogynist speech.
