Misogyny

Medieval Europe regarded women as morally superior men. This carries over to the modern day.

Patriarchy

In the West children inherit their father's name because the society was historically patrilineal not patriarchal.

Any Patriarchy that did not benefit men would be, by definition, dysfunctional. Thus feminists actually argue we live in a dysfunctional Patriarchy. They do have a low opinion of men.

Suffrage

In general nations that became independent during the 20th or 21st centuries granted universal suffrage to men and women at the same time. In nations that became independent before the 20th century men typically led women by a few years or decades in obtaining suffrage. Even a few decades should be seen as a short period of time given that human political thought has been developing for at least 5000 years.
