It’s time for every woman’s least favorite game show, Misogyny Mayhem! Join us as our host Kevin takes us through a rousing round of the game you can’t stop playing and you can never win!

This brand new episode of The FREQ Show is all about breaking down the often insidious and invisible ways in which misogyny works, and what allows so many people to carry it around and to perpetuate it without even realizing they’re doing it. We discuss the differences between misogyny and sexism and talk about how men suffer under patriarchy as well, and then respond to some of the most common arguments used to suggest that there’s no longer a need for feminism in our culture. Finally, Carolyn presents us with a not-so-foolproof plan for eliminating misogyny once and for all.
