Misogyny in Other Religions

Here are just a few examples of misogyny from other religions.

 

 


 

Judaism


A man’s wickedness is better than a woman’s goodness; women bring shame and disgrace   Sirach 42:14


May the words of Torah be burned, than that they should be handed over to women   Sota, 10a


Whoever teaches his daughter Torah teaches her obscenity   Sota 21b


.

Hinduism


Him to whom her father may give her, or her brother with the father’s permission, she shall obey as long as she lives. Though destitute of virtue, or seeking pleasure elsewhere, or devoid of good qualities, a husband must be constantly worshiped as a god by a faithful wife.   Manu 5.151-154


.

Islam


Your women are a tillage for you; so come unto your tillage as you wish   Surah 2:223


Men are the managers of the affairs of women for that God has preferred in bounty one of them over another… Righteous women are therefore obedient, guarding the secret for God’s guarding. And those you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them   Surah 4:34
