I think it is interesting that a few reviewers of this book cast the insult "hysterical" and "over emotional" at Dworkin without any sense of irony -- for hundreds of years women's thoughts and philosophical treatments have been dismissed as unserious by labeling them "emotional", as though the Declaration of Independence, the Wealth of Nations, and anything by Thomas Paine were not also written with passion. But this is a work by a woman, and thus it goes...

This work is very important in understanding the experience and motivation of women like Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, Anne Coulter, and other right wing women who attack feminism even while they are the beneficiaries of its work. Unfortunately, I think this book is going to become even more relevant in the coming years, and so I recommend it to all women -- particularly Republican/conservative women -- and encourage its reading with a subjective introspective view.

What's in it for them? Here is Andrea Dworkin to tell you in superb detail exactly why right-wing women stand against their sisters. She explains with in-your-face language how the right has managed to be highly successful in opposing women's rights. Dworkin pulls no punches and will never apologize for telling it like it is. This book is incredibly inspiring and significant.

This book shows how many women failed to escape patriarchal discipline, which trapped them in its nets despite their feeling that they were rebelling. It is an indictment on a society in which many women are only educated to high school level, and barely have the theoretical backgrounds which would enable them to escape the nets of patriarchal power over them. Dworkin supplies us with the theoretical background for a deeper understanding of patriarchy -- and for an understanding that has historically been missing.

What a vibrant writer Ms. Dworkin was. I have not read the entire book, I hope to read it bit by bit. As another recommendation, it is also great to listen to her testimony before congress about pornography... She was a top-notch american intellectual of the 2nd half of the 20th Century, a great feminist.

We need more books on this subject...and a study of today's elitist pseudo-liberals/progressives is also needed. Where did all the feminists go?
