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.

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, 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!!!"

Everything I even thought I knew about Andrea Dworkin was wrong. I read this book, intrigued to know more about this feminist who seemed to be either loved or hated by so many. What I found was a passionate and painful book about what women (and trans people even) suffer in this world. It was full of, not ridiculous or outlandish leaps, but a true love of women and a desire for their liberation. It was an honest and aggressive attack on the horrible things women experience in this world, radical now, and even moreso when it was written. It prompted me to read more Dworkin and she is now one of my favorite writers, whether or not we agree on everything. Experiencing her passion and love is truly a gift in this world.
