I remember reading Hemingway years ago in college and not caring for him very much, but I thought -- hey that was a long time ago, maybe I've matured, so I picked up the short stories and read through most of them (including all of the In Our Time stories). I didn't pick up on the misogeny aspect so much as a complete disinterest in women or womanly things and the complete absence of female figures in most of the stories. In particular, that first story about the indian woman giving birth was really all about the men delivering the baby and the father's reaction to the woman's labor. Just my opinion.
