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!!!"

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.

Andrea Dworkin may be controversial among modern feminists (and any non-feminists) but this book is worth reading for her wit and spitfire attitude alone. She delightfully unpacks the patriarchy, explains her thoughts clearly and concisely, and makes it hard to disagree. Dworkin is a no-nonsense force to be reckoned with.
