Yes, and no, if he was he wouldn't have made slim respect her, (Curley's wife) but there is no actual proof that he is. John Steinbeck shows that he doesn't like women by making Curley's wife ridiculous, she doesn't even have a name xD

There are differing opinions on this matter. Some critics argue that Steinbeck's works exhibit misogynistic tendencies due to his portrayal of female characters. Others argue that his portrayal of women reflects the societal norms of his time, and that his works also highlight the struggles and strengths of women. Ultimately, it is up to individual interpretation.
