Earlier, professor from the Zagreb Institute of Philosophy Ivana Skuhal Karasman said that feminism in the West will continue to take on more and more radical forms, which, in turn, will lead to an increase in male-hatred. “I do not exclude that it will come to attacks on men,” the philosopher predicted. In her opinion, radical feminists will increase pressure on women who do not share their ideas.
