A lot of really fascinating ideas, commentary, and history. The first three parts of the book — on fairy tales, pornography, and footbinding / witch-burning were both gripping and horrifying. I love how clever and perfect Dworkin's prose is; in hardly any words, she is biting and exact. I was not such a fan of the last part of the book, on androgyny, and the pro-heterosexuality, pro-incest, and pro-zoophilia utopia she describes. Interesting thoughts on punctuation in the angry afterword.

A collection of short essays analyzing global patriarchal culture (from fairy tales to "witch" burnings to foot binding etc), showing how mysogyny is both implicated in and serves to re-enforce sex segregation and male supremacy.

Highly recommended. ( )

This book is ridiculous and dumb.
