Misogyny is defined as a hatred of women. It can be distinguished from sexism (discrimination based on sex, usually against women, and attitudes that foster stereotypical social roles based on sex). (Merriam-Webster)
Throughout his life Trump has boasted of his sexual dominance. It is a consistent thread from his high school yearbook naming him of the official 'ladies man', to his boasting on The Howard Stern Show, humiliating Miss USA and Miss Universe pageant contestants, attacking Megyn Kelly during the republican candidate debates, and his 'grab them by the pussy' comment on Access Hollywood among many other examples. His disdain for women is one of Trump's most consistent characteristics.
This page will track Trump's misogynistic actions and statements.
