UK secretary slammed for not knowing what the word misogyny means | TheHill – The Hill

The U.K. Justice Secretary Dominic Raab has been accused of not understanding what the word misogyny means after incorrectly referencing the word during an interview on violence against women.

While Raab was speaking on BBC Breakfast Wednesday, he stated, “Insults and misogyny is absolutely wrong whether it’s a man against a woman or a woman against a man”.

The host of the program then read him the “dictionary definition of misogyny,” which is “hatred towards or directed at women.”

Opposition parties in the U.K. chastised the Justice Secretary in response to his remarks. The Liberal Democrat equalities spokeswoman tweeted on the matter Wednesday. 

Raab has been put under fire in the past for his comments on women and girls. He has previously defended his remarks in which he called feminists “obnoxious bigots”. 

He also has said that “men are getting a raw deal from cradle to the grave,” and referred to “double standards” by feminists in the fight for equality, back in 2011. 

Raab’s commentary comes while in discussion of action the U.K. authorities plan to take to address the “systemic issues” that lead Officer Couzens, the man who murdered 33-year-old Sarah Everard earlier this year, to continue working in the London Metropolitan police force. 

The officer had arrested Everard under the false pretense that she was violating COVID-19 restrictions. Couzens then raped and murdered Everard. He was sentenced to life in prison with no parole last week.
