Sexism is the mistaken assumption that one sex is inherently superior to the other in all important ways. It is most often practised by males who attempt to use it to justify oppression of women and perpetuation of a patriarchy.

Sexist bigots are little different from racist bigots. In fact, it is probably not unusual to find both forms of bigotry in the same person.
