5.0 out of 5 stars Deprogramming from patriarchy's brainwashing September 25, 2012
By Joyce
I ran into Sonia Johnson at the first continental Bioregional Congress in 1984 when she was running for president as the Citizens Party candidate. She was the first woman to get federal matching funds to run for president, but she had little or no support from the national media. Beginning in 1977 she campaigned indefatigably for the Equal Rights Amendment, denouncing her church's (Mormon) opposition to the amendment. This resulted in her excommunication from the church.

My summary of Wildfire: There was a flourishing culture oriented around women for tens of thousands and perhaps hundreds of thousand of years. Patriarchy is a relatively new and weak culture based on control and violence. It is now (the book was written in 1991) going down and taking everything with it. Women's most crucial task is to deprogram ourselves from patriarchy's brainwashing, including the guilt of mothers. Since women do 2/3 of the world's work, make 1/10 of its money, and own less than 1/100 of its property, our resources are keeping it going. Each woman has to figure out for herself how she gives her power to men. We need to let go of letting male partners or children be responsible for our feelings and to find our source of satisfaction within ourselves.

1.0 out of 5 stars A feminist masterpiece March 10, 2002
By v-disc
This self-published marvel is a classic of nuttiness. Inspired by Mary Daly, this somehow manages to be even cruder and crankier.
