words of love and hate: misogyny vs. female empowerment the logic of misogyny. with priya basil, maaza mengiste, jagoda marinić

What exactly is misogyny, and how is it different from sexism? And why do women sometimes defend a system that despises them? Priya Basil, author of the 2021 essay »Im Wir und Jetzt« [tr: In Us and Now ― Becoming a Feminist], writer Maaza Mengiste, and Jagoda Marinić, author of »Sheroes. Neue Held*innen braucht das Land« [tr: Sheroes: New Heroes the Country Needs], explore how the learned overvaluation of men and the learned undervaluation of women are embedded in politics, in public life, and in all of us. They explore the question of whether anti­feminist discourse has its roots in our society’s political shift to the right or whether the causes of misogyny lie at a systemic level.
