This is much more important that the sex wage difference within the developing country, which is about half to one-third, and which is a secondary cause of low wages in multinational factories,.

The term, like most negative descriptions of attitudes is used as an epithet and applied to a wide variety of behaviors and attitudes. Misogyny is an exaggerated pathological aversion toward...
