Why I Hate Women is Pere Ubu's thirteenth album. It finds Keith Moliné stepping in for departing longtime guitarist Tom Herman, making this the first Pere Ubu studio album not to feature any of the group's founders (except for David Thomas), either as members or as guests. Explaining the title, David Thomas wrote "Why I Hate Women is based on the Jim Thompson novel he never wrote but would have".[1]
