Format: Paperback
Fabulous book written by a fabulous woman who was more than the sum of her...well...parts. Although written in the early seventies Dworkin takes a very interesting, humorous, blunt, critical, approach to the misogyny which is typical of all nations and analyzes it thoroughly through various examples of psychological as well as physical brutality against women from Chinese foot-binding to the notorious "witch burnings". Great read, kept me laughing at various points throughout. Kept in mind that this was written during the heat of the women's revolution , and thus had a repetitive revolutionary tone-but nonetheless all said with good intentions in-spite of how male readers will obviously respond to the point she is trying to read. Vedy Vedy cool writing style though which makes it easily for any open minded reader to swallow.

Okay, i think she occasionally gets extreme, but times have progressed since this book was written. Sometimes one really has to push the limits to get things brought to a "happy medium". I keep reading and thinking, "Wow, that is SO true! I wish i'd known this back when i was young!!!"

Format: Paperback
Andrea Rita Dworkin (1946-2005) was an American radical feminist and writer, as well as anti-war activist and anarchist in the 1960s, best known for her criticism of pornography; she was married to John Stoltenberg. She wrote many books, such as Pornography: Men Possessing Women (Plume), Our Blood / Andrea Dworkin., Heartbreak: The Political Memoir of a Feminist Militant, Intercourse, Scapegoat The Jews, Isreal, and women's Liberation, Life and Death, Right Wing Women, Letters from a War Zone, Mercy: A Novel, and Ice and Fire : A Novel.

She wrote in the Introduction to this 1974 book, "This book is an action, a political action where revolution is the goal. It has no other purpose. It is not cerebral wisdom, or academic horses___, or ideas carved in granite or destined for immortality.

Okay ladies ..don't freak out! I have a lot of issues with this lady and her books. Andrea is/was the reason why a lot of women did not want to call themselves feminists. Andrea was the bad to Gloria Steinem's good. Thank God for Gloria, because Andrea sucked the life out of second wave feminism. Dworkin and Catherine MacKinnon were on a crusade to save grown women from themselves and it did NOT work. I think hardcore pornography is gross, but feminism is about choices no matter how stupid!
Andrea tried to work with the police in the 1980s to have sex trade workers prosecuted, but Andrea had been a hooker herself! This woman was the biggest hypocrite ever and yet she had her fans for some ridiculous reason. She was a hysteric and a paranoid who thought Men were to blame for every single thing that went wrong in her life. If mainstream feminism had been up to her she would have killed the women's movement ! Thankfully it was not and the rational pragmatic women that make up the movement today have been successful and will continually carry their message to the next generation. Women like Andrea will be constant reminders of what not to do and how not to be as a feminist leader especially now with the fourth wave coming up.

Thank you,
S
