Misandry (pronounced /m??sændri/) is hatred (or contempt) of men or boys. Misandry comes from Greek misos (?????, "hatred") and an?r, andros (????, gen. ??????; "man"). It is parallel to misogyny—the hatred of women or girls. Misandry is also comparable with (but not the same as) misanthropy which is the hatred of humanity in general. The prefix miso-, meaning 'Hatred' or 'To hate' applies in many other words, such as misocapny, misogamy, misarchy and misoxeny. Misandry is the antonym of Philandry—the fondness towards men, love, or admiration of them.
