double moral standard:

Or: double-standard / double-sexual-standard , one set of principles, rights and privileges for men, an inferior one for women; especially the granting of greater sexual freedom to men than to women. The traditional attitude, considered sexist today, that-there are two sets of sexual standards, one for men and one for women, and that sexual freedom is acceptable for males but not for females. This unequal set of moral standards, rules, and expectations allows men more sexual freedom than women. Examples: 1. If a man has sex with 100 women he is regarded as a stud , but if a woman has sex with 10 men she is branded a slut . 2. Premarital sex is expected of young men but not of women.
