By Kim ParkerJuliana Menasce Horowitz and Renee Stepler The public has very different views about what society values most in men and what it values in women. While many say that society values honesty, morality and professional success in men, the top qualities for women are physical attractiveness and being nurturing and empathetic. When it comes to traits or characteristics people in our society believe men should not have, no response stands out:
Johnson, "misogyny is a cultural attitude of hatred for females because they are female". Misogyny is manifested in many different ways, from jokes to pornography to violence to the self-contempt women may be taught to feel toward their own bodies.
Though most common in men, misogyny also exists in and is practiced by women against other women or even themselves. Misogyny functions as an ideology or belief system that has accompanied patriarchal, or male-dominated societies for thousands of years and continues to place women in subordinate positions with limited access to power and decision making.
Historical usage Euripides In his book City of Sokrates: An Introduction to Classical Athens, J. Roberts argues that older than tragedy and comedy was a misogynistic tradition in Greek literature, reaching back at least as far as Hesiod.
The earlier, longer, and more complete passage comes from a moral tract known as On Marriage c. He then offers an example of this, quoting from a lost play of Euripides in which the merits of a dutiful wife are praised. Chrysippus' point is more abstract than Antipater's, and Galen quotes the passage as an example of an opinion contrary to his own.
What is clear, however, is that he groups hatred of women with hatred of humanity generally, and even hatred of wine. It is this issue of conflicted or alternating emotions that was philosophically contentious to the ancient writers. Ricardo Salles suggests that the general stoic view was that "[a] man may not only alternate between philogyny and misogyny, philanthropy and misanthropy, but be prompted to each by the other.
According to Cynthia Freeland Aristotle says that the courage of a man lies in commanding, a woman's lies in obeying; that 'matter yearns for form, as the female for the male and the ugly for the beautiful'; that women have fewer teeth than men; that a female is an incomplete male or 'as it were, a deformity': In the Apology, Socrates calls those who plead for their lives in court "no better than women" 35b The Timaeus warns men that if they live immorally they will be reincarnated as women 42b-c; cf.
The Republic contains a number of comments in the same spirit e, d-e, e, b-c, devidence of nothing so much as of contempt toward women. Even Socrates' words for his bold new proposal about marriage He never says that the men might be held in common by the women We also have to acknowledge Socrates' insistence that men surpass women at any task that both sexes attempt c, aand his remark in Book 8 that one sign of democracy's moral failure is the sexual equality it promotes b.
It was the title of a play by Menanderwhich we know of from book seven concerning Alexandria of Strabo 's 17 volume Geography  and quotations of Menander by Clement of Alexandria and Stobaeus that relate to marriage. But those feelings which are the contrary of these are supposed to have fear for their foundation, as a hatred of women, such as is displayed in the Woman-hater of Atilius; or the hatred of the whole human species, as Timon is reported to have done, whom they call the Misanthrope.
Of the same kind is inhospitality. And all these diseases proceed from a certain dread of such things as they hate and avoid. In summary, Greek literature considered misogyny to be a disease —an anti-social condition—in that it ran contrary to their perceptions of the value of women as wives and of the family as the foundation of society.
These points are widely noted in the secondary literature. The World's Oldest Prejudice, Jack Holland argues that there is evidence of misogyny in the mythology of the ancient world. In Greek mythology according to Hesiod, the human race had already experienced a peaceful, autonomous existence as a companion to the gods before the creation of women.
When Prometheus decides to steal the secret of fire from the gods, Zeus becomes infuriated and decides to punish humankind with an "evil thing for their delight".
This "evil thing" is Pandorathe first woman, who carried a jar usually described—incorrectly—as a box which she was told to never open. Epimetheus the brother of Prometheus is overwhelmed by her beauty, disregards Prometheus' warnings about her, and marries her.
Pandora cannot resist peeking into the jar, and by opening it she unleashes into the world all evil; laboursicknessold ageand death. Buddhism, Purity, and Gender, professor Bernard Faure of Columbia University argued generally that "Buddhism is paradoxically neither as sexist nor as egalitarian as is usually thought.
While some scholars see Buddhism as part of a movement of emancipation, others see it as a source of oppression. Perhaps this is only a distinction between optimists and pessimists, if not between idealists and realists As we begin to realize, the term "Buddhism" does not designate a monolithic entity, but covers a number of doctrines, ideologies, and practices--some of which seem to invite, tolerate, and even cultivate "otherness" on their margins.The whole goal of a Titus 2 woman is to train younger women in Biblical, simple-to-measure, Spirit-empowered, love-based living..
Paul did not call for Titus as the pastor to train all the women in these qualities God wanted them to cultivate; rather he called upon the godly older women of Christ's church. On Gender Differences, No Consensus on Nature vs.
