The term is a combination of two words: woke and misogyny.
Misogyny refers to hatred of women, while woke means “Aware of and actively attentive to important societal facts and issues”, two words that are opposite of each other.
A woke misogynist describes a pseudo-feminist person who masks their words in a way that hides true intention. This type of person is typically someone who tricks people into believing they are allies.
Here is an example of a woke misogynist:
“Male comedian: Women are evil bitches. Am I right?
Male comedian: Well… how about this: White women are evil bitches. Am I right?
(Audience erupts in laughter and cheers.)”
