The foundations of early Christian misogyny — its guilt about sex, its insistence on female subjection, its dread of female seduction — are all in St. Paul's epistles. [23]

Islam

.The fourth chapter (or sura) of the Qur'an is called Women (An-Nisa).^ Qur'an, 2:282 "And call in to witness two witnesses, men; or if the two be not men, then one man and two women, such witness as you approve of, that if one woman errs the other will remind her."

[29] Nietzsche had advised his readers to 'read him well' (i.e. not necessarily at face value) as to not misunderstand his statements and see the reality and fact of his words. It has been postulated that some of Nietzsche's views concerning women were a result of cognitive dissonance between his exaltated concept of the "Eternal Feminine" as being the spirit of complete freedom and individuality, and his observance of the behaviours of nineteenth century women who were to him, the epitome of subservient conformity.

Wittgenstein

The philosopher Wittgenstein was influenced by Weininger's views on women [30] Wittgenstein enthusiastically recommended 'Sex and Character' to his peers and in the face of their criticism pointed out Weininger's greatness [31]

For example, to cite Cynthia Freeland's catalogue: "Aristotle says that the courage of a man lies in commanding, a woman's lies in obeying; that "matter yearns for form, as the female for the male and the ugly for the beautiful;" that women have fewer teeth than men; that a female is an incomplete male or "as it were, a deformity": which contributes only matter and not form to the generation of offspring; that in general "a woman is perhaps an inferior being"; that female characters in a tragedy will be inappropriate if they are too brave or too clever"(Freeland 1994: 145-46)[32]

Kant

Wikipedia
Wikipedia has an article about:

Simple English

Misogyny means hating women. A misogynist is a person who hates women. Misogynists hate women because they believe there is something wrong with them, such as being stupid, dirty or evil.

Misogyny is different from sexism, which is not based on hate. Sexist wants to give different rights and roles to women and men, but not because there is something wrong with either sex. Sexist thinks it is natural or right that sexes have different rights and roles. They believe God or nature has made women and men different and therefore they belong to different roles.
