In the European Parliament, Janusz Korwin-Mikke, a member from Poland, continued his misogynistic insults against women pushing forward his long-established campaign in Europe for the marginalization of women.
In Warsaw, yesterday, in the same week he told the European Parliament that “women must earn less than men because they are weaker, they are smaller, they are less intelligent”, Korwin-Mikke said the “20th century stereotype that women have the same intellectual potential as men, must be destroyed because it is not true.”
This member of the European Parliament is sounding very much like the misogynistic murderers leading countries in the Middle East, South-East and Asia, Africa. Does Europe really want a parliamentarian who talks about women the same way as does the Islamic State?
RINJ respectfully asks the European Parliament to suspend the “gentleman” indefinitely. The European Parliament has great men and women members who do not deserve to be tainted by this sort of unmitigated attack on half its constituents.
The RINJ Foundation women believe the European Parliament will address this egregious outburst in a manner that respects its constituents and maintains the esteem of the Parliament.
Notwithstanding the insult factor to the majority of the Parliament’s constituents, the misogynistic remarks marginalizing women contribute to a growing trend of violence toward women, says RINJ.

Women and kids are in dire trouble in the 21st century because of this kind of marginalization campaign against women.
Gender equality is vanishing as a concept, replaced with extreme violence against women.
Meanwhile we bring up Eminem’s insistence that fans should rape women that men have become angry with, which also contributes to violence against women.
The RINJ Foundation has publicly proposed a criminal indictment of Eminem for encouraging Americans to rape women.
RINJ proposes an alternative way of thinking.
Each one of us surrendering to love, social cooperation and altruism versus hatred, separation and greed, will change our current path. We need to make a change because misogyny barters with extinction and its end game is species extermination.
The Patriarch Has Started A War With Women.
In Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Kenya and Chad, women and children are being displaced, murdered, raped, beaten and marginalized in many ways IN THE MILLIONS.
“Wake up world. What are you doing?”, asks RINJ’s Katie Alsop.
In a world where the mother is looked down upon and oppressed her newborn child’s ability to develop empathy is damaged.
The developing human mind in children functions in somewhat predictable patterns.
There are important stages for personality development reached at age 2 and 5. At each stage the mind seeks development and understanding. The personality is forming and role models are needed. The process involves establishing the third dimension of empathy that requires bonding to another human being and learning how to sense and feel emotion and perceive the emotion of others.
If something interrupts the bonding at the umbilical chord, to the mother in other words — like hearing and witnessing abuse to the mother–the child will be seriously conflicted on what emotions to accept and believe. The child will not mentally reach out to another human being until solving the conflict about binding to the oppressed mother in distress and spurned by the only other people available for bonding. The never ending frustration of feeling maternal love but having it ripped away in a patriarchal environment of misogyny is both painful and eternally damaging to a child. After that it is too late and what you have in this child’s mind is what will be forever–a two dimensional detached non-empathetic uncaring anti-social personality disorder. It’s not a good idea to marginalize the basis for human existence: the womb.
Misogyny is a serious mental illness.
Misogynists are probably clinically sick or have disordered personalities. The clinical terms would make your head spin because including the traits and complications and subsets of the foregoing, the multiple word diagnosis would fill a paragraph. The street vernacular is “asshole”. These are dangerous misogynists.
Violence against women these men encourage is worrisome and why “assholes” are a threat to the safety of women and children.
Violence Against Women Reported in 2016
- Pure violence and aggression threatens the well-being of women at alarming rates. More than one in three women in the U.S. regularly fears being sexually assaulted, according to a new report from Gallup, and it’s a concern that crosses national borders. Nearly 2.5 million cases of sexual violence were reported globally in 2014, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, with many countries reporting more than 100 instances of rape or sexual assault per 100,000 people.
- A United Nations-funded survey of more than 10,000 men, the most common reasons for rape included sexual entitlement, seeking of entertainment and as a punishment. Masculinity, dominance over women and participation in gangs were noted as associated factors in the report.
- UNICEF estimates that more than 200 million females in 30 countries have undergone female genital mutilation, often within a few years or months of birth. The practice is especially common in the Middle East and Africa, with up to 90 percent prevalence among girls and women between 15 and 49 in countries like Egypt and Sierra Leone.
- It is estimated that 35 per cent of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual violence or sexual violence some point in their lives. However, some national studies show that up to 70 per cent of women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime.
- Women who have been physically or sexually abused by their partners are more than twice as likely to have an abortion, almost twice as likely to experience depression, and in some regions, 1.5 times more likely to acquire HIV, as compared to women who have not experienced partner violence.
- Although little data is available—and great variation in how psychological violence is measured across countries and cultures—existing evidence shows high prevalence rates. Forty-three per cent of women in the 28 European Union Member States have experienced some form of psychological violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime.
- It is estimated that of all women who were the victims of homicide globally in 2012, almost half were killed by intimate partners or family members, compared to less than six per cent of men killed in the same year.
- In 2012, a study conducted in New Delhi found that 92 per cent of women reported having experienced some form of sexual violence in public spaces in their lifetime, and 88 per cent of women reported having experienced some form of verbal sexual harassment (including unwelcome comments of a sexual nature, whistling, leering or making obscene gestures) in their lifetime.
- Worldwide, more than 700 million women alive today were married as children (below 18 years of age). Of those women, more than 1 in 3—or some 250 million—were married before 15. Child brides are often unable to effectively negotiate safe sex, leaving them vulnerable to early pregnancy as well as sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.
- Around 120 million girls worldwide (slightly more than 1 in 10) have experienced forced intercourse or other forced sexual acts at some point in their lives. By far the most common perpetrators of sexual violence against girls are current or former husbands, partners or boyfriends.
- At least 200 million women and girls alive today have undergone female genital mutilation/cutting in 30 countries, according to new estimates published on the United Nations’ International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation in 2016. In most of these countries, the majority of girls were cut before age 5.
- Adult women account for almost half of all human trafficking victims detected globally. Women and girls together account for about 70 per cent, with girls representing two out of every three child trafficking victims.
- One in 10 women in the European Union report having experienced cyber-harassment since the age of 15 (including having received unwanted, offensive sexually explicit emails or SMS messages, or offensive, inappropriate advances on social networking sites). The risk is highest among young women between 18 and 29 years of age.
- An estimated 246 million girls and boys experience school-related violence every year and one in four girls say that they never feel comfortable using school latrines, according to a survey on youth conducted across four regions. The extent and forms of school-related violence that girls and boys experience differ, but evidence suggests that girls are at greater risk of sexual violence, harassment and exploitation. In addition to the resulting adverse psychological, sexual and reproductive health consequences, school-related gender-based violence is a major obstacle to universal schooling and the right to education for girls.
