Nicole Brown Simpson, the Hedda Nussbaum child abuse case, and the mass murder of female students at a college in Montreal, Dworkin makes clear in her inimitable way the obvious things we stubbornly fail to notice.

Scapegoat : the Jews, Israel, and women's liberation by Andrea Dworkin( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With examples that range from the Inquisition, when women were targeted as witches and Jews as heretics, to the terror of the Nazis, whose aggression was both race- and gender-motivated, Dworkin illustrates how and why women and Jews have been scapegoated and compares the civil inequality, prejudices, and stereotypes that have framed identity for both groups. Taking the state of Israel as a paradigm, Dworkin traces the growth of male dominance in societies both old and new-resulting in the subordination of women and a racial or ethnic "other.""--Jacket

Heartbreak : the political memoir of a feminist militant by Andrea Dworkin( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Always innovative, often controversial, and frequently polarizing, Andrea Dworkin has carved out a unique position as one of the women's movement's most influential figures, from the early days of consciousness-raising to the "post-feminist" present. A tireless defender of women's rights, especially of the rights of those who have been raped and assaulted, and a relentless critic of pornography, Dworkin is one of feminism's most rigorous minds and fiercest crusaders." "In Heartbreak, she reveals for the first time the personal side of her lifelong journey as activist and writer. By turns wry, spirited, and poignant, Dworkin tells the story of how she evolved from a childhood lover of music and books into a college activist, embraced her role as an international advocate for women, and emerged as a maverick thinker at odds with both the liberal left and the mainstream women's movement. The chronicle of a special life and its times, Heartbreak reveals the emotional price paid by a person who, from the age of six onwards, finds it impossible to compromise. Readers across the political spectrum will be engrossed by Dworkin's memories: refusing to sing Silent Night in grammar school, falling in love with books as a teenager at the local bookstore, fighting to rid Bennington College of parietals, giving away her money on the Orient Express en route to Crete, saving children in Amsterdam, speaking at a battered friend's funeral, fighting for sex workers at a NOW meeting in New Orleans."--Jacket
