The whole town's talking about it. It's not right for a woman to read. Soon she starts getting ideas and thinking...
~ Gaston LeGume mocking Belle.
You symbolize the hope that women will one day win an argument with their husbands, that they won't be catcalled when they walk down the streets, that their bosses won't talk about their tits anymore, that they'll make just as much money as men make, that the FIGHT is WINNABLE! But when I kill you, they'll see that there is no hope. Women can't lead. Women can't win! They will always be outsmarted and outmuscled! They need to finally understand that what they CAN and SHOULD do is SHUT UP, KNOW THEIR PLACE AND MAKE ME A GODDAMN SANDWICH!
~ Kai Anderson to Ally Mayfair-Richards.

Misogynists are female-hating villains who are known for misogyny. It can be physical or emotional abuse specifically 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 (or even cause some serial killing). It is also not uncommon for them to be perverts, rapists, pimps, etc.

Although associated mainly with males, some females can be misogynists as well (examples being Jane Tiptree, Femme Fatale, GiffanyStitch Sisters, and Sharon Quinzel).

The opposing counterpart of misogyny is misandry, the hatred of men. See Misandrists for more details on that-although the two can overlap, even if rarely (e.g. Billy Blim).

Important note: A villain who hurts females for reasons that are unrelated to gender do not count as misogynists. For example, Ganondorf repeatedly kidnaps Zelda, but comes from a matriarchal society and frequently works with female villains such as his surrogate mothers, Twinrova. Thus Ganon should not go under this category as he does not show hatred or patronizing behavior towards females as a whole.

Good examples of Misogynists include Andy Evans, Ken Wheatley, Sunny Jim, Douma, Water Street Butcher, Gaku Yashiro, Captain Vidal, Jabba the Hutt, Lord Piggot-Dunceby, Glenn Quagmire, Sir Piers Pomfrey, Homelander, Josh, and Hugo Martinez.
