Abstract:

In this controversial classic work, noted feminist thinker Andrea Dworkin examines the oppression of women in our society and finds its roots in the most basic sexual act. Is intercourse the tender and loving communion of equals, asks Dworkin, or the socially sanctioned celebration of men's physical, psychological, political, and economic dominance over women? Her startling and provocative answer challenges us to rethink the very act without which humanity would cease to exist.
