Radical Feminists: A Guide to an American Subculture provides a current, comprehensive introduction to the Radical Feminists of the 1960s and 1970s, familiarizing readers with the individuals, organizations, actions, and philosophies that comprised this now-historic movement. Of course, the feminists of the 1960s and 1970s stood on the shoulders of the crusaders who came before. Thus, the book looks at important historical events that paved the way for Radical Feminism, also examining the influence of the Women's Suffrage, Civil Rights, and New Left Movements. Specific social and political issues that concerned the Radical Feminists are explored, including sexuality, sex roles, contraception, and abortion; equal opportunity; feminism in the media; and women in leadership. Finally, the work scrutinizes the fate of the Radical Feminists and their legacy, discussing how their work affected the women's movement overall and how it affects the women—and men—of today.

»Sexus und Herrschaft« ist Kate Milletts erstes Buch. Es erschien 1969 und machte die Autorin über Nacht berühmt. Übersetzungen in zahlreiche Sprachen folgten. Kate Millett stellt in ihrem Buch die These auf, daß Sexualität ein politisches Instrument ist und der Koitus, die scheinbar intimste Beziehung zwischen den Geschlechtern, dem Patriarchat zur Unterdrückung und Demütigung der Frau dient. Als Beleg für ihre These analysiert sie die Werke von Autoren wie D. H. Lawrence, Henry Miller, Norman Mailer, Jean Genet. Das Buch gehört seit seinem Erscheinen zu den Standardwerken der Frauenbewegung.

Radical Feminism Today

Radical Feminism Today offers a timely and engaging account of exactly what feminism is, and what it is not. Author Denise Thompson questions much of what has come to be taken for granted as `feminism' and points to the limitations of implicitly defining feminism in terms of `women', `gender', `difference' or `race//gender//class'. She challenges some of the most widely accepted ideas about feminism and in doing so opens up a number of hitheto closed debates, allowing for the possibility of moving those debates further.

Reconsidering Radical Feminism

Affect and the Politics of Heterosexuality

What’s the right way to be a feminist? Reconsidering Radical Feminism is not only a clear, precise summary of late-twentieth-century feminist debates about the politics of heterosexuality. It’s also an examination of how we become invested in arguments that position us as particular kinds of feminists – and as gendered subjects. Through the lens of poststructuralism, queer theory, and affect theory, Jessica Joy Cameron investigates the legacy of the passionate dispute between radical feminism and sex-positive feminism. In doing so, she reveals the timeliness of her subject as contemporary policies about sexual assault, consent, and safe spaces come under scrutiny.

Excerpt: Andrea Rita Dworkin (September 26, 1946 - April 9, 2005) was an American radical feminist and writer best known for her criticism of pornography, which she argued was linked to rape and other forms of violence against women. An anti-war activist and anarchist in the late 1960s, Dworkin wrote 10 books on radical feminist theory and practice. During the late 1970s and the 1980s, she gained national fame as a spokeswoman for the feminist anti-pornography movement, and for her writing on pornography and sexuality, particularly in Pornography: Men Possessing Women (1979) and Intercourse (1987), which remain her two most widely known books. Dworkin was born in Camden, New Jersey, to Harry Dworkin and Sylvia Spiegel. Harry was the grandson of a Russian Jew who fled Russia when he was fifteen in order to escape military service and Sylvia was the child of Jewish immigrants from Hungary. She had one younger brother, Mark. Her father was a schoolteacher and dedicated socialist, whom she credited with inspiring her passion for social...

Jahrelang sorgte Kate Millett durch ihre politischen Aktivitäten, ihr öffentliches Bekenntnis zur weiblichen Homosexualität und ihre Bücher, die zu »Bibeln« der Feministinnen wurden, für Schlagzeilen. Auf dem Höhepunkt ihres Erfolges wurde sie von einer »seelischen Mißstimmung« erfaßt. Was dann folgte, war die Psychiatrierung eines Menschen: seine Zwangseinweisung in Kliniken, Selbstmordversuche – ein dreizehn Jahre lang andauerndes Martyrium. Kate Millett schildert in ergreifender Weise ihre Odyssee durch die Psychiatrie.Die amerikanische Presse urteilte: Seit Ken Keseys »Einer flog über das Kuckucksnest« hat es in der Literatur keinen solchen Aufschrei gegen psychiatrische Einrichtungen und Praktiken gegeben.
