Today I came across the word "misogynist" in Essential Words for the GRE book. I have already looked it up in a couple of dictionaries. There is no consensus amongst them that whether the term is applied to "a man" or "a person"! My question here is that can a woman be called a "misogynist"?
a man who hates women .
a person who hates or strongly dislikes women, or who thinks they are generally less able than men.
A person who dislikes, despises, or is strongly prejudiced against women.
a man who hates women or believes that men are much better than women.
