Men Who Hate Women by Laura Bates

Transcript of interview with Christiane Amanpour on October 28, 2020.

The full interview is pending and when available, will be posted here:

and on the Amanpour and Company YouTube channel.

The Repercussions of Misogyny in Society

Introduction
In her new book, “Men Who Hate Women,” feminist writer Laura Bates takes audiences behind the curtain of gender warfare to expose communities of extreme misogyny, where men are taught to hate and punish women. Christiane speaks with Bates about her difficult, often disturbing findings.

CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR: Laura, the title of your book is really quite worrying and actually frightening. I mean, it’s called “Men Who Hate Women.” There’s no ifs, ands or buts about it, no qualifiers. What made you write that book and what is the nut graph, so to speak, in what you are trying to impart?

LAURA BATES, FOUNDER, EVERYDAY SEXISM PROJECT: Well, I suppose it’s important that the book is called “Men Who Hate Women” and not “Men Hate Women.” So, we are talking about a very specific small group of men. Of course, this isn’t about all men. I started writing the book because I was aware of extremist communities of what you might call male supremacists online as a feminist writer and researcher. But for me, I started to recognize the impact they were having on young people on my school visits. As part of my work, I talk to young people in schools across the country around the world. And over the last couple of years, I started to notice that I was coming into contact with more and more teenage boys who had been radicalized online with very hate-fueled ideas about women, really extreme misogyny, who had been taught to believe, for example, that there is an epidemic of false rape accusations raging, that there is a feminist conspiracy at the heart of government designed to topple white men from their jobs. And I realized that by any other name, we would call this grooming or radicalization, if it were another group propagating hatred amongst young people, but very few people know about these groups, even though they actually take their ideology offline and commit real life atrocities in the name of this extremist misogyny.

AMANPOUR: You know what, all I have to do is swap ISIS for what you’re talking about and I think you’re talking about grooming, radicalizing, you know, young men or vulnerable youth, for some kind of war against the demographic. And in a way, that’s what you’re saying. I just want to read something that you say in the book. We do not use the word terrorism when describing a crime of mass murder committed by a white man with the explicit intention of creating terror and spreading hatred against a specific demographic group, even though that is the definition of terrorism. If the demographic in question is women, the man is just disturbed, deranged, a lone wolf. Are you basically saying the authorities should be looking into this in a serious a manner they do in terms of terrorist recruitment?

BATES: Absolutely, because it meets every international definition to be described as such. I’m talking here about massacres like Elliot Rodgers, Santa Barbara massacre, where six people were killed and 14 injured, or Alek Minassian, the Toronto van attacker who drove a speeding rental van into crowds, killing 10 people and injuring 16, the majority of them women. These are attacks that have been explicitly carried out, their attackers have made very clear in the name of an extremist hatred of women, but we don’t consider them terrorism, although we would for another form of attack carried out for similar motives.

Supreme Court Win for extended vote counting, NPR Tweets

JUST IN: The Supreme Court, in separate decisions, allowed North Carolina and Pennsylvania to extend their dates to count mail-in ballots. Justice Amy Coney Barrett did not participate in either case.

https://twitter.com/NPR/status/1321613544715100162?s=19

NEW: The Supreme Court has rejected a bid from Republicans to block North Carolina’s absentee ballot extension.

The ruling means the state can count mail-in ballots received up to nine days after Election Day as long as they’re postmarked by Election Day.

I have an opportunity to set up an at home broadcasting studio.


I need some help. The deadline for submission is this Friday and I am completely overwhelmed.

If you could set up your own from home, zoom type studio with all the needed hardware, what would you buy? The set up should include cameras, laptop, microphones, lighting and any software and hardware to set up an office, like a three way print, copy and fax machine. Add in things like supplies; paper, pens, resource books for, in this case, seasonal arts and crafts for children. What would you buy?

Money is no object.

I have to submit my proposal this Friday, October 23rd. I know that's short notice but I just found out about it.

Thanks for your help.
