If the marriage counseling is not helping her with her marriage and her husband continues to berate her with names and hatred it may be time for her to reconsider being married to this man. If he hates women in general then there may be nothing the wife can do until he gets individual counseling to find out why he hates women and what it stems from, it could be that he didn't have a good relationship with his mother or some woman hurt him to the point that he has this deep rooted hatred for women to the extent that he cannot respect his own wife. She should give him an ultimatum either get individual counseling or she is going to leave she doesn't deserve the verbal abuse. He may also resent her for going to marriage counseling and even blame her and may have thought he was just fine until he started going. The topic of him hating women and why needs to be address in order for her marriage to be saved and it may take something drastic like her leaving for him to finally see that he needs help with his issues with women and find the root of where those feelings came from.
