Misogyny is the hatred of, contempt for, or prejudice against women or girls. Misogyny manifests in numerous ways, including social exclusion, sex discrimination, hostility, androcentrism, patriarchy, male privilege, belittling of women, violence against women, and sexual objectification.

Misogyny Hate Crime Policy

In Nottingham we believe that misogyny has no place in a present day society. That’s why we’ve been actively fighting to make misogyny officially recognised as a hate crime – see the Misogyny Hate Crime Policy tab for the latest developments in this area.


Misogyny takes shape in multiple forms, one of which is sexual harassment in workplace – to help tackle this issue, we’ve st up #TimesUpNotts – a network of women taking action to end sexual harassment at work in Nottinghamshire. Check out the #TimesUpNotts tab for more details and how to get involved.
