The Macquarie dictionary (Sixth Edition 2013) defines misogyny as:
noun 1. hatred of women.
- 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.
