Compelling, griping, illuminating, and a quick read; couldn’t ask for more.
Unity and Diversity in Feminist Legal Theory. I agree with most of radical feminism beside that major point and a few others.
The other issue I have is the end sections about ‘taboo’ subjects. There was something intoxicating about getting to know a woman who had been vilified as a man-hating misery but who was, in fact, a warm, open-minded intellectual. Intercourse is worth reading if you’re interested in Dworkin. I made that vow some thirty years ago, and I have not betrayed it yet.
Although Andrea could be high maintenance, insisting on special security measures when she spoke at conferences or other public venues her life had been threatened more than oncethere was no monstrous ego to deal with, and nothing of the spoilt, pampered middle-class feminist we Brits had come to dread in our north American sisters.
There seems to be a taboo taboo where it’s taboo to not talk about taboo. I mean what can you say about Dworkin.
I cannot recommend this book to anyone. She really captures something about how women are constructed anddrea mythology, and how that in turn is played out through major misogynistic practices, cross-culturally.
Jean Chothia – I hadn’t considered hatnig from this point of view – probably, I hadn’t considered anything at all except in a most superficial way. May 03, Lestari Hairul rated it really liked it. She made far too much reference to a couple of creepy and disgusting books, when I just want to read what -she- writes.

So, thank you, Andrea Dworkin. The first line broke my heart. Experiencing her passion and love is truly a gift in this world.
The first line reads: Published December 1st by Plume first published Request removal from index. However, I support this text and its pursuit for a more equitable society. Thanks for telling us about the problem. The book’s final section discusses the concept of androgyny within various cultures’ creation myths and argues for “the development of a new kind of human being and a new kind of human community” free from gender and gendered roles.

Woman Hating by Andrea Dworkin
If you wanna tl;dr this book, you can probably get by with just its absolute banger of a final chapter. Over the next eight years, Andrea and I wrote and spoke regularly, and met up whenever we happened to be in the same country. I read this book, intrigued to know more about this feminist who seemed to be either jating or hated by so many.

Gender Feminism and Ifeminism: But it’s wrapped in all that utter outdated crap. The majority of the book is brilliant and well-articulated; the sections on fairytales, pornography, foot-binding, witch-burning are so strong, both fascinating and horrifying.
Glenna Matthews – Excepting the last chapter however– one of the best books I’ve ever read!

Women should read it for their own good and men should read it for the good of the women in their lives, mothers, wives, sisters and daughters. The only logical response to it was to set all girlish romantic illusions aside, recognize the world for what it was, and set forth relying upon one’s self, seeking a path that would not require any sort of intercourse with anti-woman forces.
This is most definitely not, unless you like being told about outdated myths about matriarchal neolithic religion surviving into dowrkin middle ages and virgin birth being actually being a Finally.
She does write from her own self all the rest of the book, though. Dworkin also shows herself to be a pioneer in the concept that there is no such thing as gender with two whole chapters dedicated to and championing “androgyny” and a genderless humanity.
