If you held a gun to my head and asked me if I thought Tolstoy liked women I would have to say no he didn’t. I do believe it was a complicated relationship he had with women and it wasn’t a matter of all-out hate but I believe he felt men and men’s society superior. And it really is an enigma with him because he understood people SO well, he had the greatest empathy of any writer, yet he didn’t like women
